nullA new study by the Archive of Internal Medicine has found something we all could have probably pieced together on our own — runners live longer and healthier lives than their lazy counterparts.

The study concluded that runners have a significantly lower mortality rate (15% vs. 34% over a 21 year period), don’t experience any more knee or joint problems, continue to have beneficial results – even from modest exercise – into their 80s, and start having age-related disabilities a full 16 years later than non-runners.


If that doesn’t get you on the treadmill, I don’t know what will.
