Having good, comfortable running gear makes running more enjoyable.
Any seasoned runner will tell you that it's a worthwhile investment to find the right combination of clothes and accessories that work for you.
But if you're new to running, there's a lot to consider.
Barefoot running, also known as natural running, involves running in bare feet without any shoes on.
This type of running has grown in popularity in recent years as people turn to the barefoot running technique to learn to run pain-free or in a more natural way.
But is this just the latest in a long lineup of fads that will fizzle out? Or is there merit behind this technique? Read on to find out.
Are you planning on running outdoors this winter? Ignore the concerns and horrified looks of your peers.
Weather shouldn't stop you from getting outside and exercising. Especially not if you follow these tips.
Whether it's for fitness, mental health or just plain fun, the perks of running are undeniable. However, those that run often are also met with one common problem: stinky sneakers!
If you're an avid runner, you know firsthand how quickly odors can build up within your sneakers. These odors are often due to excess instances of sweat and moisture inside your sneaker.
The winter months are upon us, but that does not mean it should preclude you from running. This is certainly the case for any beginners who feel like the time is right to start developing a routine. Yet, they may be reluctant because the temperatures are freezing cold.
Running seems to be a polarizing experience. Some people hate it while others can't seem to live without it. In truth, most people who take up running for the purposes of fitness eventually find that they enjoy more than just the health benefits it provides.
Within a short period of time, new runners will begin to see improvements in muscle tone and cardiopulmonary function. With regular, continued practice, endurance will improve. Those with a competitive spirit will enjoy running with friends or a local running club, as well as training for races, perhaps starting with a 5K and working all the way up to a marathon or even more challenging contests.
