Alanis Morisette, the singer who has become the marathon-running poster child for good health recently spoke with Runner’s World about depression and how running has helped her deal with it. The 35-year-old said that,
“running has made being depressed impossible. If I’m going through something emotional and just go outside for a run, you can rest assured Ill come back with clarity.”
In 2009 Alanis has run two marathons, one of behalf of the Maasai Wilderness Conversation Trust with Edward Norton and the other representing the National Eating Disorders Association. The Grammy-winning singer has always been an athlete and used to swim seven days a week, but now running has become her fitness passion and it helps her both mentally and physically. She said,
“But I tie my laces, put on a tight bra and get out there like a little robot. The first 10 minutes are excruciating, but soon I get into the flow.”
Morisette also told the magazine that she tries to follow a healthy lifestyle, eats plenty of kale, but allows herself to indulge in red wine from time to time.

Good job on eating kale! Together with running there is nothing better for building strong bones.
