ODE TO RUNNING
Running: I love you.
Running: Thank you.
It’s Global Running Day, a celebration of running that encourages people to get moving.
No matter how fast, how far, where, get moving!!!
It’s very important to be physically active to live a healthy, happy, long life.
Running has so many benefits. It can improve physical and mental health.
Running can help you maintain a healthy weight (combined with a healthy diet).
It can improve heart health, build strong bones, strengthen muscles. It can help keep joints healthy, it can improve brain function.
When we exercise, our body releases endorphins, lovely chemicals that trigger positive feelings. That’s also why running can diminish perception of pain, reduce stress and anxiety, boost self-esteem, make you feel more energized and happier, improve sleep.
Should I add more?? 😊
I run for all the reasons mentioned above and many more.
When people ask me why I run, even when it’s freezing or very hot, or when I don’t really feel like it, I show them pics of my face after a run or a race. That big smile says it all!!
I love running, and I’m grateful my body can do it!!!
Hope you’ll give it a try. Happy Global Running Day !!
And don’t forget, Run is Fun!!
