Running…the Cheapest Sport!

If you are thrifty like me as a former accountant or just looking for one of the most optimal workouts that gets you in shape the fastest relative to the amount of time you are putting into the exercise, then running can be for you.  There is no age limit, there is no place to limit you, there is no skill you need to know or learn to start and, other than a great pair of running shoes, there is no large up front investment

Positives…..

There is a relatively quick ramp up from walking to running, a quick increase in cardiovascular endurance and fitness; there is a large group of people who are all doing the same sport which generally welcomes newcomers with open arms;  there is a running partner for almost everyone…. People look at runners who have finished races with admiration.  You feel good when you are done and after you have been running for a while.

A Pair of Shoes….

That is all that is stopping you from starting.  Go to a great local running store….ask me for advice if local to Northern NJ.   What is holding you back?   Bring the shoes with you on vacation and business trips…. a pair of shoes and off you go.

Not too many sports are this easy to enter.  If you want to get better running gear, you can.  If you want to get all the gadgets, you can.  If you want to run races, you can.  If you want to run races away from home you can.  But nothing is necessary to just begin….  just a pair of shoes.

With only a handful of weeks before May and summer, this is the time to start.

Happy Running….
