I love love running because the French hate it

The WSJ had this article on Running for Lean Times. The article talked about the recent uproar after pictures surfaced of French President Nicolas Sarkozy was seen in shorts and a T-shirt breaking a sweat running. The article continued:
Running is an American activity, the French press claimed, a fascistic act designed to manage and control the body. Not an intellectual pursuit at all. "It is about performance and individualism," one writer wrote, right-wing values antithetical to everything cherished by the country (France) that gave us foie gras.

Apparently I run because I am about performance and individualism. God bless the USA and running!
