Maybe you need more inspiration to dust off your jogging shoes. According to Dr. Peter Schnorhr, chief cardiologist from the Copenhagen Heart Study, found jogging was associated with a 44% reduction in the risk of death compared to non-runners. Basically, joggers live an average of 6 more years than non-joggers/runners! But, they get more than a longer life. People who ran/jogged also reported an overall sense of well being. The researchers found the optimum benefit came from people who jogged at a slow-to-average pace for 1 to 2.5 hours each week. These revelations are the latest research from the Copenhagen heart Study, which began in 1976 with 19,329 participants ranging in age from 20 -79.
