Benefits of Running
“There are two kinds of people- those who run and those who should.” -Brooks Running
This is to encourage would-be runners to choose a healthy lifestyle we call “RUNNING”
Following are some answers to my question I posted on Facebook and Twitter:
“Its the one thing that can clear my head.
It helps me get my thoughts in order and after a run when all the
adrenaline is present, I’m in a much better state of mind in where I
can make smarter decisions/reactions. Running is like the gift that
keeps giving. All of the physical benefits should be reason enough!
But on the flip side there are the great people you meet, better sense
of nutrition (you actually start to care because you become aware),
cheap and easy sport to get in to, etc. Health is wealth and if
running is free, i think we’ve got ourselves a great deal!

“Running is my training when I climb. With running I was able to build my endurance, proper breathing, and strength which I used to climb the toughest and highest mountains in the Philippines, Mt. Guiting-Guiting and Mt. Apo.“

“Nakatulong ang pagtakbo ko para maiangat ko ang prinsipyo ko sa buhay na kahit ako ay isang dukha lamang kaya kong maki-pag-kapwa-tao! Datapwat sinasabi ng iba na magastos lang ang pagtakbo doble naman na benipisyong naiidulot nito sa buhay natin at napapalakas nito ang ating kalusugan. Ang pagtakbo rin ay isang seryosong paraan upang maiangat natin ang kalidad ng ating ekonomiya at mag silbing inspirasyon tayo sa mga kabataan na nalululong sa mga masasamang bisyo!“

“Foremost benefit of running to me is that it has kept my hypertension in check. My BP has always been normal coz of running. In addition, it has given me added focus and determination in other aspects like career and personal endeavours.“
