This ain't very scientific, but possibly could be interesting. I am doing some research into the principle of 'risk'. I am quite interested in people's perception of risk.
For example, using genetically modified food as an example, your either for it or against it based on who you are, beliefs etc etc
So, what about running? Fifty percent of people will tell you that running is bad for you. Bad for your heart, big event tragedies such as GNR always quoted, bad for your knees.
Anyone have any experience of this?
Why did you take up running? Why do you believe that the risks were worth it?
Just really interested to hear runners points of view on this. WShen I am finished, I am going to try and shape this into some sort of research paper which of course I will make available.
