I love to run. I have been in many races. I ran for 18 years. I can't run anymore because it is too painful. I don't know if running causes arthritis, but it can certainly aggravate it. Not everyone who doesn't run is lazy - maybe they just hurt.

Fair enough. And I feel for you. I've been injured in the past, and I went nuts waiting for things to heal. Not being able to run would be a serious blow to my happiness.

On the other hand, my observations of friends and family is that the ones who are the most out of shape, and the least likely to exercise, are the same ones who think I'm nuts because I enjoy it so much. They tell me I'm going to have lots of problems later in life. Then they gripe about their high colesterol, lack of energy, being overweight, etc.
