Why Run?

When you envision running, you probably will fall into one of two categories. Either you love it or you hate it; sometimes it is even a love/hate relationship. But what makes people love it?

Know About Safety.

Be sure that you know the area you plan to run in and how safe it is. Either run with someone, carry a cell phone or mace, or run with a well-trained dog.

There is a debate among runners as to the proper time to stretch, or, in fact, whether it is important to stretch at all. Because there is not a fixed suggestion for stretching, new runners would do best to listen to the advice of their doctors or try a number of different routines to see what works best for them personally.
