20 Reasons to Lace up and Get Out Running

We all need motivating sometimes to get out and get exercising. We know we will feel much better once we have finished so here are 20 reasons why you should go out and run!

  1. Teaches you discipline, keeping you focused.
  2. That high you get when you have finished a run! The endorphins are kicking in. It's a priceless feeling and gets you pumped.
  3. That PB (personal best) feeling when you have put the wok in and it's paid off..
  4. Feeling like you belong to a club. Being a valued member to a club is a great feeling! You will also get to make many new friends.
  5. Your body is great, you have a toned body after regular runs. You deserve to show it off!
  6. You can afford a little treat..you won't need to worry if you ate a brownie because you know you'll just burn it off.
  7. Free, now technically you need trainers and all the clothes but it's the cheapest sport because you don't need excess equipment.
