"So" you might ask, "what can I learn from running, why should I choose it as a sport, and what makes it unique to all other sports?" Here are a few good answers:
Running is the most efficient path to cardiovascular fitness and weight control. Its a great conditioner of strength, speed and stamina of other sports. For example, you don't play tennis to get in shape to run, you run to get in shape to play tennis.
Running is the most accessible sport. No matter where you are, running shoes will travel. Many have often toured many a city while running.
Running is a great stress reliever and self-esteem booster. Moreover, since it requires discipline, it helps you through some of life's other pressures. Consider it as your shrink on the road.
Running is environmentally correct. Since you're venue is the road ,its your duty to keep it clean. Rarely will you see a runner throw litter on the ground. Respect the roads is our motto.
Running is an equal opportunity sport. Everyone who lines up for a road race is respected for their abilities, no mater what their pace or religion.
Running is a social sport. During many other sports, you can't have a conversation with your partner. But with running , many friendship are developed on the roads. Running buddy is a familiar term.
Running is a sport that continues to award and reward you with its age-group structure at races. This structure enables you to compete against your peers in the same five or 10-year age group and possibly win an age-group award. This is called bringing home the hardware.
