Running Guide for Beginners – Additional tips

There is a reason that running is officially ranked as the most popular activity around the world. It’s hard to believe that when it first originated it was just for practical reasons. Our ancestors relied on this skill in order to hunt for food millions of years ago, but it was never used for recreation. It became more sport-like in Ireland in the early 19th century when it was introduced as one of the events for a fitness challenge. After that, the modern-day Olympics embraced the sport of running in the late 19th century, but it wasn’t done outdoors for fun until the 1960s. Before people found pleasure in the sport of running, there were only indoor treadmills and they were used as a punishment for prison inmates.
