The Top Ten Reasons Why Running is Great

There are many reasons why running is one of the most popular forms of aerobic exercise. Aside from the shoes, running is relatively inexpensive. In good weather, running gives you a chance to enjoy the outdoors, but in bad weather, running can be done indoors. Running can also burn significantly more calories than other aerobic activities. Since running is a weight-bearing exercise, it may also prevent osteoporosis.

  1. Running is the most efficient path to cardiovascular fitness.
  2. Running is the most accessible of aerobic sports. You can run anywhere without fancy equipment
  3. Running is inexpensive and easy to learn.
  4. Running is the best method of stress reduction on the market.
  5. Running can help ease women's menstrual tension.
  6. Running is an excellent compliment to a weight control program.
  7. Running is a flexible method of training. You can run at your own pace, with or without company, at whatever time of day that suits you.
  8. Running increases your overall sense of well-being.
  9. Running is for families and individuals of all ages.
  10. Running is a great social activity.
  11. Running can be done anywhere, even you are traveling.

Running and walking can be incorporated into any routine and can be done by people at any level of fitness. They don't require much equipment -- just a good pair of running shoes, and maybe a supportive sports bra -- and can be done almost anywhere. Just put one foot in front of the other and go.
