Running shoesIt's easy to begin, (costing little more than the price of a good pair of running shoes) and maybe more importantly - anybody can do it.

Almost a half-century since it first began in the 1960's, the craze for running and jogging shows little sign of slowing down.

Like most fitness & exercise regimens, running smart means working up to your endurance level, while avoiding injury and muscle aches & sprains.

Around the Web, more expert advice awaits, where you can find detailed how to's on proper levels of hydration and nutrition, running in hot weather, tips on buying running shoes or treadmills (plus thoughtful jogger gift ideas) along with guides to stretching, breathing and toning, and additional tricks to maintaining endurance & fitness before you hit the ground running....
