I was drawn to serious running by friends who kept pushing me by asking the same question every time till I signed for my half marathon along with them.
A novice or a neophyte runner like me who can go for 5k, 10K or 21K run went through practice and training. If I can do anyone can do it and here are some of the benefits you will see:
1. Your negative emotions will fade away.
2. Mindfulness being your friend.
3. Improve on immune…even 36F would look a nice day for a run.
4. Increase in overall well being.
Running is about being in present…you will start listening to your mind, body, and soul. Here is a quick run checklist
a. Run 3 to 5 times in a week.
b. Check weather… too cold or too hot is something to avoid.
c. Dress accordingly
d. Stretch if not before…sure after the run.
e. A smile.
