Your reasons are some of the same for me. I find it allows me to clear my mind, concentrate on pacing my breathing and that is a form of active meditation. Why does your metabolism play a role? By the way 2 to 3 miles per run is pretty good.
I am real lean, I hate to brag. But I have to fight to keep my weight up. Seriously, if went 5 or miles 3 or 4 times a week(which I can), I would probably weigh in at under 150 pounds, which is not good for someone like me who is over 6' tall. When I keep my jogging to what I do, I can usually maintain my weight, or at least not lose to much.
