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.
I feel your pain. When I was competitively running I was going 3-5 times a week for 5-10 miles per. Throw in 2 10-mile bikes rides, another day or two in the pool, plus lifting 4 times a week, and I weighed in at 152 tops, usually closer to 150. That was also while I was taking in at least 4000 calories a day. Sometimes you have to love it though. I used to joke that I could eat an entire pizza and lose two pounds!
