There are many reasons why somebody starts running and also, many that keeps them running for years. Personally, I really enjoy this sport. I started running since I was in elementary. That time, I don’t know the benefits of running that can give to me and to everyone. All I know is just to enjoy the run with my classmates.
There are fun runs and running events almost every weekend around the Metro. Most of them are fun runs -a friendly race that involves road running with participants taking part for their own enjoyment rather than competition. I must say, I’m always part of it- to have fun, to enjoy and to help for a charity.

Wear comfortable clothes like jersey (running singlet)
Do a warm up before running

Don’t forget to bring water
Things to be consider in buying running shoes
Price-Sometimes we choose affordable items over the expensive ones and in the end, our money was just put to waste. We sometimes get the wrong choice of affordable yet poorly made shoes. Check on the product’s price but do not forget to make sure that item is made from durable materials
Size of your feet Make sure that what you are going to buy perfectly fits your feet even when there are socks on.
Durability-It should be durable enough to withstand any factors that might ruin its good performance.
Comfort – Consider the comfort that the running shoes can provide for your feet
