"Baby we were born to run!” Bruce Springsteen knew it and so should you. Running is good for you and there are at least 10 great things that will happen to you if you start running just a few minutes every day. You don’t think much of twenty or thirty minutes in a day. You zone out for 30 minutes a day, wank for 20, or watch a show you tolerate for 30 minutes a day. On the other hand, spending 30 minutes a doing something productive and healthy is going to change your life for the better.
