Running Can Provide Health Benefits

Researchers found that running, no matter the duration or speed, will reduce mortality risk by about 30% compared with non-runners.

According to the Journal of  the American College of Cardiology, runners had  a 30% lower risk of death overall and a 45% lower risk of death from heart disease or stroke than non-runners.

On average, runners lived three years longer than non-runners.  According to the latest study, some exercise is clearly better than doing none at all.

Running consistently can even balance out other things that raise your risk of early death, including obesity, high blood pressure and smoking.

People who want to start running should start slow with walking, then introduce jogging.
