The Dudeson's re: pollution
I find if I end up running during rush hour that I notice a difference in the running itself and after I come back, I'm coughing for a while. Activity is better than sitting still, but I can't help wondering if I'm doing permanent damage to my lungs. Can almost taste the difference in the air along the river, or just outside the city, or even in the city early in the morning before traffic starts flowing.

anyone know if there are trails not too far from the Wen Hua Xiang area? There's one tiny park near Minzu Da Xue, but not really 'trail'. keep hoping there's a faster/closer way out of the city to some good places for running that I'm unaware of.

there are also articles like this out there though:

and one of the benefits of barefoot running/running w/o cushioned shoes is to reduce the impact and change the stride so that the body naturally takes on or changes the stresses of the activity...

although the running world certainly isn't in complete agreement on that yet. And what kind of exciting sports are you playing in which you're not running?

1 - it depends on how you're measuring risk - basically every exercise and/or sport brings with it some kind of risk of injury

2 - well... and?

3 - I used to agree with you, but that was before I'd done a lot of running on my own. There's a different kind of awareness of the body and its capabilities that comes with running, and a connected thrill. I enjoy playing other sports as well, and it's very possible there are sports you enjoy playing that I would find incredibly boring and/or annoying. Most sports couldn't live up to my favorite, but what does that have to do with the benefits of the others, or with a conversation on running routes? So jogging is boring for /you/... so I'm guessing a good suggestion would be you probably won't want to put a lot of time into going jogging, unless you want to join a group of friends in the activity. Or maybe try it for a month and see if you change your mind. :)

This thread is kind of a strange place to pick up the topic of 'running is boring.' Definitely a 'choose your audience' moment.

I'm on mapmyrun too - hadn't seen any other Kunming runners there. Although I haven't posted any routes either. I usually run along the river from yi er yi or down around Cui Hu, trying to get out before 7am when the traffic and the resulting fumes get really bad.

there are maps near the entrances though, that will tell you the different sections. I want to say the fabrics might be on the 3rd or 4th floor - same floor as the yarns. Lots of sellers for each kind of good.
