This is a good thing?
Apparently, Marathon Running times are up significantly since the economic down-turn. The title of the article I read about this phenomenon is "Unemployed People Run Faster." Haha--right? Not so much. Correlation does not equal causation and significantly more data supports the fact that general health DECLINES in times of economic depression--due to stress, worse nutrition, and lack of affordable medical care. So, let's hold up on the glib prounouncements about the "benefits" of recession/depression. What do you think, dear reader?
