Happy National Running Day

June 6 is National Running Day. If you haven’t already, get out there and pound the pavement!

Did you know, from an evolutionary standpoint, human beings were designed to run long distances?

Our Achilles tendons, which don’t exist on our primate relatives, allow is to stride quickly over long distances and our large legs and joints absorb the impact of our feet striking the ground.

In fact, an annual race held in Wales pits horses against humans in a marathon and humans routinely win!

Looking to get into running? One of the most popular training programs for novices looking to get into it is the Couch Potato to 5K plan.

Ready to run that first race? The Jersey Shore Running Club holds races throughout the area, year-round.
