Beginning to Run: Recreational running and jogging

How many reasons do you need to run:
1. Pleasure--the sport makes you feel good
2. Fitness, self-esteem and confidence increase
3. Relaxation from stress
4. Improved health--you’ll lose weight
5. To compete with and against others or the clock. 

If you are able to walk, you can probably run.
and at little expense. (No court or course cost, minimal equipment cost)
and, you can run anytime and anywhere.

	There's also substantial advice on injury avoidance and treatment, 
plus nutrition and essays.

schemes and running habits; to introduce new training sessions.
