|Let's pretend that those men she's tying up are|
my metaphorical demons.
I believe running to be a wonderful way to beat many a demon. Whether it's low self-esteem, depression, love handles, committment issues, image issues, lack of will power, whatever. Running, for all the reasons I've listed on this blog week after week, has to the power to beat whatever demons you're fighting. The sense of accomplishment alone will vanquish those demons of doubt and self-loathing that makes us all unhappy. I don't honestly know a runner who would disagree with me here.
