You don’t need a lot of equipment and you can frequently find a nice refreshing outdoor venue to exercise in and unwind, and there are often indoor tracks that you can use during bad weather. Despite the ease of getting into running for exercise, it’s important to wear the right shoes and you need to be aware of possible injuries that often occur to runners.
