Anyone can go run: They need exercise too. Running is a good way to exercise or lose weight, as long as one doesn't eat a lot of snacks, energy bars, nor drink sugared drinks while running. Weight will drop if the calories burned during running exceed the calories eaten or drank during or after running. It is a medium impact sport and is good for people who don't get knee, ankle, or foot pains with running.
