1. Running decreases your risk of heart disease.
Running improves your cholesterol and blood pressure, ensuring that you have a healthy heart. It’s been shown to reduce your risk of heart disease by nearly 45%.
2. Running can reduce anxiety and stress.
Running releases endorphins, which are chemicals that promote positivity and happiness. When you run, your brain releases these chemicals, allowing you to not feel so stressed, even when you’re getting in a great workout.
3. You can run anywhere!
Making time for a workout is hard when you’re traveling or really busy, and just don’t have time to make it into the gym. Running allows you to just grab your shoes and go whenever you can. It also lets you explore new places when you’re out of town or in a new city.
