    Why should you run?

    Running into the distance

    Running is one of the easiest activities to pick up. Even if you are unfit and overweight, you will be able to run. I guarantee it. With the right mind set, and daily commitment, you will get there. It might be slow and it might be boring at first, but you will get there if you commit yourself and remain disciplined.

    Running doesn’t need any special equipment, simply slip on a pair of runners and off you go. You can do it anywhere and anytime. Even, when you are on holidays, travelling the world, you can run.

    Why should you cycle?

    Cycling is addictive. If you haven’t ridden a road bike, then you are missing out on speed, excitement, and a great social bonding activity. Unlike, running, however you will need to have a bike. But the best thing about having a bike, is that once you are hooked on the sport, there is so much to talk about. Similar to cars, there are so many aspects to bikes and their accessories. It really is amazing.
