Where we continue to see injuries though are in those so-called weekend warriors. Who really haven’t prepared the bodies correctly, either through stretching techniques or proper conditioning. They will go from zero to one hundred and wonder how they hurt themselves. As in all factors in life, everything in moderation. Consistent exercise that includes running is not only good to keep the joints lubricated, but also keeps the heart pumping. So while this may not be the fountain of youth, if it is shown to increase people’s longevity and their ability to age gracefully without disability, then I say: shouldn’t we all be running?
