Get a good running start with this clear-cut beginner's guide!
Recreational running has enjoyed a resurgence in the last 40 years or so. A book simply called Jogging was published in the United States in 1966. It was so successful that recreational running began to pick up steam. During the '70s, around 25 million people worldwide took up running for fitness and social recreation. Why did it become so popular? For starters I challenge you to find another form of exercise in which you can burn 100 calories in under 10 minutes. Then there is the social factor. Running is an excellent way to meet and bond with people in groups. If you are single and looking for someone with an active lifestyle, a running group is a much better bet than a bar. Another huge factor is that running as a sport has a very low barrier of entry - anyone can lace up some shoes and get started within the day!
