The best reason for getting out and going for a run is because you can. Running is cheap compared to other sports (you only need a good pair of running shoes), it doesn’t take a lot of thought or preparation, and it doesn’t require a lot of time – any distance counts as a run! It’s the gateway sport to all other activities and something that New York Road Runners promotes as a lifelong activity. Taking that first step can be the hardest, but once you get in the groove, the endorphins kick in and you relax. You can feel the stresses of daily life slip away and be replaced by an exhilarating calmness that you won’t want to end. So what’s stopping you? Go for a run!
