I was reading a fellow running blog this morning, and stumbled upon this post. I feel exactly the same way, and did on a recent trip to Philadelphia, but wasn’t sure how to fluidly explain it — so I thought I should share!

“Why I Run
Having been away for a weekend that involved several very indulgent meals, I have another to add to the ‘Why I run’ list. Because, although I’ve never been overweight, age makes it more difficult to continue eating all the foods we like without some side effects. I refuse to give up eating nice, indulgent food and running means I won’t have to. All things in moderation though – I am, of course, referring to the running.”
