ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the trend to encourage more joggers in the United States. It is claimed that there are now some twenty million dedicated joggers in the U.S. According to the author, the idea of running did not come as a spiritual revelation. It was a matter of empirical choice. He wanted to escape from Every-coach, and running, is the first instinctive sport. According to the author, sports reflect the priorities of a society. What afflicts the body politic must necessarily afflict the body cultural.
