THE GOLD STANDARD
As a fellow depression sufferer, I found Kate Armstrong’s piece (RW, Aug) to be a lovely read. Over the years, running has helped me keep my depression in check and has recently played a key part in me coming off medication. The physical and emotional reward of each run provides the perfect antidote to the side effects.
For me, running is like panning for gold – I go out with a head full of all sorts of unwelcome, unhealthy or just unnecessary thoughts. I come back with just those nuggets that I want to keep – all the rest has fallen away. Jake Robson, Brighton
