Running makes sense if you do it for a good cause

All the benefits of running regularly and progressively are well known. There is a lot of talk
about the health benefits, which are incredible, but there are also many other values of
personal and social development behind these great deeds.

Running a marathon is not only the 42,195 km that separate the starting line from the finish
line, it is also the number of training sessions, of efforts made to find the moment to go
running, of exceeding your limits both in distance and in time, etc… An innumerable list of
values linked to sport that makes everything make more sense.

Perseverance, self-improvement, respect, tolerance, self-discipline, etc… Definetly, sport is a
vehicle for both personal and social development.

All these values that we see in sport are values that are also necessary in overcoming
adversity, and that is why so many sporting challenges are created to give visibility and support to social causes.
