Running is as ancient as humanity. It's more than simply a way to get around; it's the great metaphor of life itself. It's not just about the finish line. It's about the journey. You can run to stay fit or to compete. Either way it's all about what you learn, and the satisfaction and accomplishments along the way.
It's a proven fact that running provides obvious cardiovascular and other health benefits. Beyond the physical benefits running provides an enhanced feeling of well being and happiness. It's a great coping and balancing mechanism to help overcome the effects of stress in our lives.
