What activity will help me meet new people?

Health Benefits of Running: Community

Of all the fitness and outdoor activities that are popular today, running probably offers the best opportunity for making new friends. The running community has its own prolific culture, which extends throughout the entire world. Whether you are a single gal looking to meet an active single guy, a business woman looking to build her network, or someone who has moved to a new town and wants to make friends, you will most likely find who you are looking for by joining a running program. Most towns or cities have their own running clubs. Even if you choose not to race, these clubs usually sponsor a number of parties.

Many companies also sponsor a number of corporate races. Competing in these races is a great way to show your team spirit. Who knows? Participation in these races may help you get that promotion you were looking for.

Running is also a great way to give to the charity of your choice. There are a number of races that benefit research for AIDS, Breast Cancer and other diseases. All you need to do is collect sponsors from your friends, co-workers and family members.

Since studies have shown that people who have a strong network of friends are physically and mentally healthier, beginning a running program is not only a great way to get in shape; it will improve your social life and your outlook on life!
