Your ar­ti­cle on run­ning for hap­pi­ness (RW, Au­gust) res­onated with me. I ex­pe­ri­enced a trau­matic event in 2014 that led to de­pres­sion. I wouldn't leave my home, which made the sit­u­a­tion worse. Then my dad, who has done 22 Iron­mans, sug­gested I take up run­ning to take my mind off what had hap­pened. I started slow, in­clud­ing runs by the beach for the feel-good fac­tor. Grad­u­ally, go­ing for a run be­came like my medicine. I’m feel­ing bet­ter and have done three half marathons. Not bad for some­one who couldn't run down the street be­fore!
