Like Nat, 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 though.

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.

I started running about three years back to keep my weight under control and initially found it boring even outside (I do not think I could run any legth of a time on a mill). One thing that I found made it more interesting is running races -- it gives you a tangible goal that you are working toward, especially if you set yourself a time you want to achieve. Also the experience of being in a race is worth the effort. My favorite distance is 10k; it is manageable to train for and there are plenty of 10k races out there.
