Interesting Tim.

I believe the meditation I use when running has helped to build up and strengthen my self control immensely.

RDXPAT, I'm curious - do you wear headphones when you run? If so that may be something you might want to reconsider. I've found that my runs have been more rich without them!

Good luck, peace and happiness for you! Run happy! and enjoy the cookie afterwards ;)

The cookie actually lights up parts of the brain that cocaine lights up. I am thinking that running hurts.

Maybe it's the practice and patience of running that makes me feel "I deserve that cookie". It doesn't make much sense, but that's what goes on in my brain sometimes. Cookie as reward for consistent working out. I definitely need to work on this!

Here's an interesting thought that occurred to me the other day and I was wondering if anyone else is in the same camp.....

For those of us who are training for a half marathon (or any race distance) or for those who are just beginning to run, I think we all realize that it takes time, a practice, and patience to reach our running goals. As runners we're "in for the long term" and realize to become good at what we do it takes mental toughness and a good amount of forward positive thinking and discipline.

My question is: why then is it sometimes so hard to delay the immediate gratification of a cookie or treat or other food when offered to us or in our vicinity? We (or at least "I") can appreciate the long term goals of so many things but sometimes not so much with food.

Any thoughts?
