  1. Overall Mental Health: Running helps to release natural chemicals within the body to make you feel happy.
  2. Lessens Asthma Effects: Asthmatics will breathe easier with strengthening the bronchi and lungs.
  3. Helps with High Blood Pressure Prevention: Running causes arteries to expand. This keeps arteries strong to maintain healthy blood pressure.
  4. Stronger Immune System: People who run often have less minor illnesses.
  5. Weight Loss: The movements with running help break down fat. This helps you burn 705 to 865 calories each hour.
  6. Physical Strength: Running strengthens ligaments and tendons and builds lower body strength.
  7. Increase Bone Density: If bones are stressed, the body sends important minerals to them. As running stresses the bones, these minerals increase bone density.
  8. Joint Strength and Stability: When you increase the tendon and ligament strength, you also increase joint strength minimizing injuries to the knees, hips and ankles.
  9. Personal Control: Running gives you higher confidence, which gives more control over your life.
  10. Reduce Effects of Diabetes: Diabetics builds up a resistance to insulin that running can lower. This maintains healthy levels of sugar in the blood.
