Americans are not strangers to running. The numbers show. Every year, more than 57 million Americans take to the streets (or tracks) and run or jog at least once. The United States is host to a variety of races, from the intrepid marathon (26.2 miles) to the solid 10K (6.2 miles) to the relatively modest 5K (3.1 miles). The country sees more than half a million people compete in marathons every year. Thousands of other kinds of races are held as well. 5K races are popular, for example, as fundraising drives. Others are created to promote wellness and diversity. Whatever the reason, the running remains the same — as does its popularity.
If you’re not into the competitive aspect, running as an aerobic sport works wonders for your body. Running is known to improve your health in several ways. Running for just 45 minutes, for example, can lower your blood pressure by as much as 12 mgs. Running has been consistantly shown to improve other aspects of your body. It can reduce weight, build muscle, strengthen your cardiovascular system, improve your breathing, bolster your stamina, increase your metabolism, and generally make you feel like a rock star. Perhaps the best part about running, however, is that it is easy to pick up. By walking for just 30 minutes a day, you can complete a 5K run in less than three months!
