Yeah...I've been running for over a year now, and have yet to really discover the "Joy of Running".
It's mostly hard work, and I've injured myself several times already (including a stress fracture of my fibula that kept me off the running trails and off the bike for over a month!). I still prefer the speed and technology that are part of cycling.
But running does provide a very good, time efficient workout, and I feel much more complete as an athlete from being able to do it (I know plenty of hard core cyclists who could not run more than 3 miles).
And, for getting in some exercise when you're traveling, it's hard to beat - a pair of running shoes and shorts fit in a suitcase a whole lot easier than my bike!
