Running is one of the best ways to give your heart muscle an effective workout. By running regularly you can improve circulation and reduce the risk of a heart attack, high blood pressure and stroke.

You can burn up to 1000 calories an hour with running. So you can expect to get smaller which in turn helps you run faster!

Regular running strengthens bones and in such a way it helps to prevent osteoporosis in women and the earlier you start it the more beneficial it will be for you.

7. Stronger Muscles:
Running also strengthens muscles so it prevents muscle and boneloss that often occur with age in men and women.
