This weekend sees the London Marathon taking place through the streets of our capital, and whilst most of us will be watching from home (and grateful for it), for the runners it marks the culmination of years of training and dedication. It goes without saying that many of us could benefit from a little more exercise and running (jogging or walking) is a great way to reduce stress or depression and to unwind after a long day at work (even though you may not feel like it!). It can also be a great way to socialise and meet new people; many areas - towns and communities - have a running club where you can meet new people and enjoy their support and motivation rather than 'going it alone'. You may even find a 'running club' in your workplace or perhaps a colleague runs with a local group. The website www.runengland.info has great information and support and can help you find running clubs and routes in your area.
