There are many health benefits associated with running. Many doctors recommend running to reduce chances of stroke, heart disease and hypertension. Studies indicate that running reduces the chances of contracting breast cancer. Runners even age more slowly because of natural human growth hormones released during the exercise. This is the same hormone that some people inject into the face to achieve a younger and healthier appearance. When you make running a habit, your muscles get toned, your joints become more flexible and your bones grow stronger. Ideal for managing weight, running is a healthy addition to your exercise regime.
