OK, so now we can admit it: Exercising is one gigantic, thunderous, crashing bore. All that stuff about "runner's high" and the Zenlike pleasure of feeling "the burn" and the purity of spirit achieved through sheer aerobic depletion--well, we're all big boys and girls now, and we know it's a bunch of snake oil. Exercise is not fun.
