Running, in particular, is proven to have health benefits that are beyond any pill a doctor could prescribe for you. If you’ve been working out already, then you have discovered it. It also prevents obesity, heart diseases, stroke, some cancers, type two diabetes, stress, depression and other unpleasant conditions.

So lace up your running shoes, say goodbye to winter and get ready for the UAE’s annual spring marathons:
