I've been going out jogging pretty much daily lately. It took less just a couple of weeks for it to surpass Dance Dance Revolution as my favorite form of exercise. I've been trying to suss out why, and though I haven't quite put my finger on it, I have enumerated the following virtues:
The odd thing is, I would expect DDR to provide all these pleasures plus the additional pleasures of playing a game. Perhaps the downtime of selecting a new song is enough of a negative to tip the balance.
- Exercise releases endorphins.
- It's aerobic, so you asphyxiate, which is a natural high.
- It's a repetitive motion, so you enter a meditative state.
- You're constantly passing by new scenery -- I've been jogging in different places at different times of day to enhance this.

But what about all the burning lungs?!

Those go away after the first couple days. The burning, not the lungs.
