Run Spot

Running is as pure a sport as you can get. All you need are a good pair of sneakers, shorts, and a T-shirt. (For the women, a jog bra is usually a plus.) The beauty of running is its versatility: If you're feeling solitary, boom, you're out the door alone with your thoughts. If you want company, it's easy to find a mate eager to join you. If you don't know anyone who likes to run, joining a running club is an easy way to find a partner.

When you start out, it's important to learn how to pace yourself so you can cover the distance you set out to run. To lose weight, running at a conversational pace for 30 to 40 minutes is more important than how many miles you go. For cardiovascular fitness, it's helpful to know exactly how far you're running so that you can measure your times as you continue to train. Again, for particular training tips, joining a running club is a great way to go. Typically, clubs have "speed" days at a track as well as long distance days. If there's not a club in your area, check out one of the many books dedicated to the subject. Runner's World magazine also is a good guide to training tips and local races in your town or city.
