During the winter time people tend to think that the Great Mother Nature cruelly took privilege of hibernation away from them. Somehow, they feel they deserve it, even though nobody can prove it. I know that many of you reading this could think that I’m exaggerating, but come on, let’s face it. If we cut off the sportsman and a few “lunatics” out of the equation, we get the huge majority of us gathered under scientific term – homo televisions and with things like spring marathons being the last on our minds. Still hard to believe, or agree on that one?
Spring Marathons – get back on your feet!
Alright, let’s use imagination just for a second. You’re sitting in front of TV just in the right distance, in your favorite, cozy armchair holding the most powerful magic stick in universe – your own remote which gives you the power to control the entire world (at least the part you care about). Fireplace is whispering a beautiful story and every now and then you look through the window to register another five inches of snow outside. And then I interrupt your nirvana with the suggestion that we could rather go out and do some push-ups or run around the block to get ready for the spring marathons we agreed to attend together. I think I’d be lucky to survive that chat. Yes, we can laugh on that one, but the fact is that this is not far away from the truth. But it’s not a shame. Entire nature sleeps during the winter as well, but when spring comes, every part of it wakes up and continues creating sheer beauty. People need to wake up too and get ready for new victories and there is no better tool than physical activity to do so. Spring marathons offer a great opportunity to get back on your feet after the lazy winter.
Are spring marathons really so good for health?
If there is a straight answer needed, than it would definitively be affirmative – spring marathons are healthy. The fact that they always take place outside speaks enough for itself. We are all familiar with the doctor’s advices to spend a lot of time surrounded with fresh air and it surely has a great impact on our health. Except for that, there is also a lot of running included in spring marathons and it’s good for the blood pressure and other vital functions of the body. However, there is a warning linked not with any marathon, but especially with the spring marathons. There has been a study which found that spring allergies are a common thing among runners after completing spring marathons. So it’s a useful hint to keep in mind.
