In favour of shorter distances

Bringing back the mile

10 reasons the 5 km is freaking awesome

Running five minutes a day has lasting health benefits

I’ve been enjoying all these articles lately in praise of shorter distances. They remind of my friend and cousin-in-law T who wanted to get out and run in the morning but was finding with two small children, she didn’t have time for her usual 5 km. And then a light bulb went off over her head. Why 5 km? Why not 3 km? Who doesn’t have 20 minutes to run in the morning?

And so her morning speedy 3 km was born.

A terrific habit. And in keeping with our theme around here, do what works for you.
