5. You Can Improve Bone Density and Joint Health
Running is a weight-bearing activity that helps improve bone density and strength. It may also help prevent or delay osteoarthritis and osteoporosis, as it strengthens your bones and the muscles around your joints.
Both men and women also need good nutrition, calcium, and Vitamin D to preserve their bone mass. Before every running workout, it is important to warm up and stretch in order to prepare your body for the run.
