Recently Harvard psychiatrist John Ratey* stated that, during running, the brain produces the 'Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor', a kind of spinach for the brain, making it stronger and more efficient!
Combined with the changes in the brain during pregnancy and, later on, motherhood, running moms must be exceptionally smart!
This is of course no news to me.
Because I am a running mom.
Just don't ask me what I did yesterday.
