    Make sure you have good running shoes picked out for your feet. Do you have high, low, or normal arches? Do you pronate? These things need to be considered once you start running decent distances or else serious leg injuries can await you,too. Of course, if you're running and you're a programmer, I suspect you've already looked into this and many of the other caveats about running.

    • I haven't looked into it too seriously. I've had the same pair of gym shoes for ages, and they don't hurt my feet at all. I have no intention of running "serious distances" - that's why god invented cars.
      • Gym shoes or running shoes? They are different...
      • I go to the local running fanatic store and get them to tell me which shoes to buy. The people in the know will look at your feet and ankles as you jog in various shoes and see what's right for you.

        After the first time I did this, I thought it was a bunch of crap. My old shoes felt more comfortable and I wanted them back. But after a couple of weeks when my body got used to the different pronation, everything felt a lot better. It wasn't just the shoes, but strengthening different tendons and little muscles
