It is an easy way to burn calories, improve cardiovascular fitness, strengthen muscles, reduce the risk of diabetes, lower blood pressure, raise good cholesterol, boost immunity to colds and other viruses, reduce stress and maintain a healthy weight,” says Kalissery.
He says training for and completing a half or full marathon can be a memorable, life-changing experience for most people.
“Running a big race can seem like a formidable challenge that only elite athletes can accomplish,” says Kalissery. “In this workshop we will let you let you in a little secret: with proper guidance and well-organized training program, almost anyone can complete a full or half marathon within six months.”
