For all of you out there that may think running is not for you, think again. The health benefits alone are astonishing:
help to build strong bones
improve cardiovascular fitness
maintain healthy weight
improve anxiety and other mental health issues
As a runner for over 12 years, I have seen it totally change my life for the better, bringing me a healthy outlet that has led to happiness, great adventures, and a ton of self-confidence. Today I chat with Dr. Duane Scotti runner, physical therapist, certified run coach, host of the Healthy Runner Podcast, and founder of Spark Healthy Runner where he helps runners get stronger, run faster, and enjoy lifelong injury-free running. We chat about just how powerful running is for self-confidence, as a spiritual outlet - and frankly that magic pill you may be looking for.
