Running: A simple yet complex form of workout that we tend to skip. It’s not that we are unaware of the health benefits of it but we are ignorant of it and lazy enough to put our body under stress and tension.
Whether you take up running for losing weight, to improve fitness, to relieve stress, to compete or other; you’ll find that the benefits are many. Running is a great cure for stress, emotional strain, even depression. You’ll likely find yourself with fewer headaches and more energy, patience, humor and creativity. Running has obvious health and fitness benefits, but more importantly, provides very powerful benefits of boosting self confidence and helping unleash one’s potential by breaking self imposed barriers.
Pune running, a group of fitness enthusiasts have been very much active in promoting fitness so that Pune can become a fitter and running city. They are regularly organizing running events in and around Pune to promote the cause. LSoM –short for- Last Sunday of the Month run is an example of the good work that this group is doing. You may have guessed from the name, LSoM is organized last Sunday of every month at different locations across Pune. Punekars have taken to this and are multiplying every month.
As time moves on here we come towards the end of March. As March 30, 2014 approaches, the group is active again and ready with another edition of LSoM. This time the event starts from Blue Ridge Hinjewadi.
Vidisha Sharma, is the Race Director for the event. She says, “It’s my social group. I get to run with people from different walks of life. I get to learn and to know about things that I would have no idea. Of course it gets me more fit and ready to deal the pressures of my work”. Running is a great way to relieve the body from all your pains, to relieve your mind of all the strains, to enjoy, to relax and to build a social network of people with healthy mind and body. Yes, agreed to the point that running does require overcoming the inertia in the initial stages but once running becomes a habit, then you are in the best state of your life.
