The Benefits of Running

Since re-injuring my right foot two weeks ago, I’ve filled the early morning time when I would usually be out running with reading.  ‘Reading’ sounds much better than ‘Surfing the Internet’…Shhhhh, don’t tell my wife.

While doing all this ‘Research’ I’ve come across many good articles and videos on how to reduce running injuries and hopefully they will help in getting me back to injury-free running once this injury has healed. But because I’ve missed running I’ve also been reading and re-reading articles on the benefits of running reminding myself of why I started running in the first place.  It keeps me going until I get back at it:


I’ll be healthy of course for Reggae Marathon this December 6 and like the Reggae Marathoner in the photo above will be celebrating after my race with a refreshing dip in the Caribbean!

Until next time…
