Running

At what age do we stop running to get anywhere?

I remember as a kid, I would run to the shop, run to school, run over to my friends house, run to the tv on saturday mornings, then running to the toilet.
These days, I do not see anyone running, except for fitness purposes or because they're late (or running to the toilet).

Is running too dangerous around the office? Probably.
Is running not fashionable? If you work around Ponsonby Road wearing a suit.
Is running as an option, not an option anymore?

Poor Forrest Gump ran for 3 years, 2 months, 14 days, and 16 hours.

I am 42 years old. I run in the office to this day, as we have wide hallways and a mission. It would be weird if all of us did, but motivation in the workplace is a funny thing.

There is a woman at work who runs everywhere, but not in an exercise kinda way, more in an "OH MY GOD I AM SO LATE I HAVE SO MUCH TO DO I AM DOING SO MUCH" stressed out kind of way. I wish she wouldn't.
