|Running is good for both the body and the mind, and it helps reduce the risks of overweight and some illnesses (in particular cardiovascular diseases). However, these health benefits can be realised only through running in the proper way. While it is relaxing to run alone, it may be even more rewarding to run with your family members or friends. Running will be more enjoyable when it becomes a social activity and part of your daily routine.|
