Hey Tim – we all know that you are not even close to average 😉

From the articles that I have read – running only boosts metabolism on the short term.  Both during your run and for a while afterward.

The permanent increase comes from adding lean muscle mass – which can partially be achieved by running.  The running will give you a “lean” factor but you will need strength training to build the muscle.
