, I started running a few weeks ago as a way to leave the pack finally behind
. I do not buy cigarettes anymore, but may smoke socially. On the running side, not to be compared to Nat, I run 5.5 miles in 50 minutes, on a treadmill. It helps a lot with keeping your heart rate at target, but one should be too depressed and bored to run more than an hour on a treadmill. If you happen to be in Downtown Toronto and run outside, lemme know. I don't like running in Queen's Park
That helps with losing the beer belly too. I do not drink that much these days either. Almost never drink alone, and perhaps a couple shots Tequila or Rum in the weekends. I expect some of my friends in Iran to drink more than I do here in Canada.
