Running is one of the most popular forms of physical activities, yet not everyone experiences it in the same way. Some avid runners prefer to challenge themselves to achieve a better time in a race, while others simply enjoy the camaraderie at a weekend run group. No matter what the motivation, most runners would agree that there is nothing like the “runner’s high” after a run. It’s what keeps people coming back for more! Going for a run is a cheap, time-flexible form of exercise that will improve cardiovascular health, increase bone density, and send those endorphins flying. The best part about this form of exercise? Anyone can do it!
If a running is so great, why is it that some find it to be a chore while others find it to be a favorite part of their daily routine? Maybe the difference is how they experience it for the first time. Or, maybe how they are inspired to keep going will influence one’s attitude toward such a health enhancing activity. One thing is clear: it can have positive effects on health outcomes. Some say “diamonds are a girls best friend,” but I feel that encouraging loved ones to start and maintain a regular run routine is the best gift one can give. So, why not combine the ideas? Runner jewelry is a fantastic strategy to encourage your girlfriends, sisters, mothers, grandmothers, etc. to start (and keep moving)towards a healthier, happier life.
As an avid runner, I feel that it is the responsibility of runners everywhere to get the message out. That is, let your passion for the sport be inspirational to your friends and family. Run jewelry is a unique way to encourage a friend to join you for a run! For some, friends and family may already be avid runners. In this case, continue to be inspirational to your fellow run buddies! Running is a way to connect with those who share a passion. Use run jewelry to remind them of a race you did together that meant a lot to you, or to remind them of their first marathon. These gifts symbolize the sense of community one can experience as a runner, which is inspirational for both those experienced runners and those new to the sport.
