I often joke with people that “I don’t run… and if you ever see me running, you better start running… because that means that something is chasing me!”
While I definitely make light of running, the truth is, I REALLY don’t like to run! I don’t know what it is, but the thought of just setting out, leaving the house and begin running down the street just never really appealed to me…
Don’t get me wrong, I have a TON of friends that LOVE running… 5ks, 10ks, marathons… they do it all! It’s just not for me… at least right now. 🙂
However, after reading a recent article… I think that might change.
The article cites a study of 1,400 people over a 13 year period and tracks their DEATH RATE… the results were a little disturbing.
You can read the whole article HERE… it’s titled “Is Running Bad For You?”
After reading the article, let me know… has your opinion about running changed? If you’re not a runner, think you’ll start?
