What do you enjoy about jogging/running routinely?

In recent years, I have run alone so I have enjoyed the solitude. Too, I find it interesting to run on various surfaces. Being a woman, however, keeps me from running in secluded areas. For safety reasons, probably no one should stray alone too far from where there are other people.

Running is an economical way to train. You can pay entry fees and travel to events if you want to as I once did, or you can avoid all that and invest significant money only on your shoes. Note: Buy them at a store in your area that is frequented by serious runners. The staff members in such places will see that you buy the right kind of shoes that fits correctly. They also will tell you how many miles your shoes will hold up before they need to be replaced. Running shoes may look perfectly good from the top but be worn out as far as helping project you from injury.

Maybe the most important reason that I enjoy running is that I savor the training effect which enables me to do so many demanding things (physical and psychological) with far less effort than I otherwise could. Example: I live in a part of the USA that is 400 ft. above sea level. Once a year, I visit family members and friends whose homes are 10,000 ft above sea level and have absolutely no problems adjusting to the thinner air. Many, many untrained people of all ages suffers serious episodes of Altitude Sickness when they are confronted with such transitions.

Lastly, I prefer to be outdoors whenever possible. In the worst conditions I use my treadmill. Nearly always though, where I live always only adjustments in clothing to make it possible to run most any day.
