Yeah, the health benefits are important, but there are so many more things that make running the coolest way to spend your free time. Here are a few of them.
THERE ARE NO SIGN-UP FEES
No monthly fees! You don’t need a fancy gym membership. Just lace up and go, that’s it. And appreciate that you simply won’t be interrupted during your run by a man grunting through squats in spandex.
YOU CAN RUN ANYWHERE
Lace up and the world is your oyster. Whether it’s your local high school track, the park, on a treadmill or even on vacation, log miles anywhere.
MAKE RUNNING YOUR “ME TIME”
Crazy commute? Cabin fever? Cramming for finals? Running is a great way to unwind, get outside, enjoy nature and find your Zen. Whether it’s catching up on your favorite podcast, listening to a new album, or enjoying some peace and quiet, running can be your escape. Just slip on those kicks and let the day’s pressures melt away.
IT MAKES YOU FEEL LIKE A SUPERHERO
Nothing causes you to desire you’ll combat the planet quite like getting out for a run, especially in the early or late hours. You’ll be taking a stand against the twin villains known as Lethargy and Laziness, and people will take notice. With every stride, your legend grows.
YOU CAN TRACK YOUR PROGRESS
Progress is addictive, which is one reason many runners log their runs. With the running Apps, you’ll track your progress and compare how different workouts cause you to feel. Use the App anytime you get on the road to log your speed, distance and mood while you run. You can even share your mid-run selfies.
YOU CAN MAKE NEW HUMAN FRIENDS…
…And spend quality time with the furry ones. Running is a great way to make new friends who all share a standard goal or inspire your current group of friends to maneuver towards a goal together. Remember, you’ll find friends to attach with using the Running App. It’s also a great way to give your dog some exercise, fun in the sun and a different type of treat.
YOU CAN EARN SOME BRAGGING RIGHTS
It’s hard to beat the sensation of setting a goal, crushing it, then letting your friends know. Even if you don’t have a physical running group, your friends can cheer you on through Facebook and inspect your post-run photos on Twitter and Instagram.
OH YEAH, AND YOU CAN MAKE IT A FUN WAY TO STAY HEALTHY
Running just two or three times a week will help you feel better than ever. And what’s even better than a healthy fun run? A dance party run. Make your workout desire an epic training montage with the Ready, Set, Go, Run playlist on Spotify. And move your pulse to an entire new rhythm. Ready to put awesome into action? Let’s move to the beat.
