Dear Brain, Thanks
I have been studying the anatomy and physiology of the brain which is so incredible. So for fun, let me just thank my brain for it's involvement in my running lifestyle.
I am thankful for the motor functioning of my frontal lobe, the cardiovascular, respiratory and vasomotor functions of my reticular formation in the medulla oblongata (as well as the pain modulation), the motor coordination and balance functions of my cerebellum, the thermoregulation, BP and heart rate homeostasis functions of my hypothalamus, and the function of coordinating motor movements of the basal nuclei deep in my cerebrum. Thanks, you rock.
