#5 – Relieves Stress

Running boosts the brain’s serotonin levels which make you calmer and more relaxed. Who said you can’t run away from your problems. Just remember to always be comfortable during your runs. One of the best ways is to wear comfy basics with light fabrics, like the Champion T425 Short Sleeve Cotton Tee.

#4 – Weight Control

Running burns mega-calories. However, it also makes you mega-hungry, especially if you are training for long distances. Unfortunately, running doesn’t give you a pass to eat all the food, all the time. Be strategic with everything you eat and the type of run you do. 

#3 – Increased Confidence

Once you start running, your confidence begins to grow. You’ll feel more in control of your life and your body. You will even begin to think you look good in spandex tights. Once you’ve gain that confidence, try something like the B960 Performance Capri, from Champion.
