Running is one of the best exercises you can do for your body, your mind and your waistline. While
running isn't for everyone, it is one of the most accessible activities there is- all you need is a good pair of
running shoes and an iPod nano (ok, you don't really NEED the nano). While running comes very natural to
most of us, building up endurance for running takes time, patience, and persistence. If you just take it slow
and gradual, you can start calling yourself a 'runner' in no time. (As with any change in your exercise level,
you should consult your doctor before starting a new running regimen.)
There are plenty of benefits to a regular running routine - running can make you feel good, look good,
breathe easier, more coordinated, more energized and it's great for your bones and your heart. Some people
run just because they enjoy it, others run to lose weight, clear their mind, or improve their health.
Running is one of the most effective ways to manage your weight because it burns a ton of calories. When
you're burning more calories than you're consuming, you lose weight. To lose one pound of body weight, your
body must burn 3,500 more calories than it consumes. Since most runners can easily burn 500 calories in
less than an hour, running once a day can help you lose about a pound a week (assuming no change in your
diet). Of course, the actual amount of calories you burn depends on a number of factors, including your weight
and how fast you run.
