Running can be an effective and wonderfully cheap way to get into better shape and support your mental health. Regular exercise will pay big dividends as you get older. Here are some ways to set yourself up for running success while making it into a long-term, even lifelong, habit that will give you joy. SHOES Photo Credit Running is one of the most affordable forms of exercise. All you need is space and shoes. That being said, don’t skimp on the shoes. Investing in good running shoes that fit well and are designed for your particular gait and stride will help to keep you injury-free so you can keep running. There are shoes out there for most people, but if you have foot issues, you might consider custom orthotics from a company like Healthy Steps Pedorthist.

I have such a strange relationship with blogging these days, but not with writing. I have been writing quite a bit over the past year, but in a more personal way that I am still unsure if or how I will use that work. As I have mentioned (for like three years now), I don’t know what I am doing with Beets Per Minute.
