Five surprising health benefits of running

 

According to a telegraph.co.uk article running is a funny thing. In this listicle the author has revealed some benefits of running.

“If you give credence to a school of evolutionary thinking, then going for a run is fundamental to the human species. In the days before we had invented projectile weapons such as spears and darts, early man captured his food using a technique known as persistence hunting. Groups of hunters would rely on their stamina to chase prey for hours, hounding the animal until it finally slowed due to exhaustion.

Our superiority in the animal kingdom can be traced back to the simple fact that we are very good long-distance runners.”
