We're all looking for more reasons to get out there and run. Sometimes, oddly enough, our health doesn't always make the cut at 8:00 am on a Saturday morning. What about doing it for the environment?
I've heard about Eco-Running in the past, but all this time I thought it had to do with running barefoot, something I am just not willing to do. In actuality eco-Running has nothing to do with what you're wearing and its principals are this: While you are out running, collect the trash that you find along the pathways, roads and trails. Stay on the move if possible -- Try to maintain your running motion while bending down to pick up the trash. Practice makes perfect! Get loads of more information at Eco-Runner.com.
I for one, love this idea. It's so easy to keep a plastic bag with you. Sure, if you're training for a race, maybe it's not the best training method, but if you're just running to run, why not pick up some trash?
Thanks to Diet-Blog for pointing Eco-Running out!
