HAPPY FEET

WHETHER YOU’RE CHASING FASTER TIMES, TRYING TO LEAD A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE OR SIMPLY ENJOY A WEEKLY PLOD, EVERY ONE OF US – WHETHER AWARE OF IT OR NOT – SEEKS ONE THING FROM RUNNING: A GREATER SENSE OF HAPPINESS. SCOTT CAIN EXPLORES HOW OUR SPORT DELIVERS ON THAT PROMISE OF MAKING US HEALTHIER, HAPPIER INDIVIDUALS

RUNNING AND HAPPINESS

What do you think about when running? More specifically, what do you think about on one of your longer runs?

If you’re anything like me, your mind flits initially. Mundane stuff really, mostly remembering things you meant to do, until, at some point, you cease to really think about anything. Or at least anything specific. It’s not that you’re aware of this nothing immediately. You’re just bobbing along. And you’re happy. You’re really happy in the moment. You’re not planning what to do later, or reflecting on what you did. You are running along, happily (and, in my case, pretty slowly).

About Men's Running

The August issue of Men’s Running is all about running happy. As a runner, it can be easy to lose track of exactly why it is you run; it’s all too easy to get swamped by target times and the pressure to perform. Our feature on Running and Happiness looks at the many reasons we lace up our trainers – and attempts to reinforce the one overriding aim we all should have: to find a greater sense of joy. Elsewhere, the weird and wonderful world of racing is exemplified by the Beer Lovers’ Marathon: 26.2 miles of booze-fuelled fun. And, in a unique take on Baz Luhrmann’s 90’s hit ‘Everybody’s Free to Wear Sunscreen’, resident ultra pro Robbie Britton has a heap of advice for would-be long-distance dons. Happy running!
