Running is great! It improves our well-being, appearance, but also can be the start of interesting relationships – if we decide to run in groups or at least in pairs. Through this activity, we strengthen the heart and positively influence thought processes. Running also helps us maintain a healthy weight. In fact, it is difficult to find a part of the body that would not be well affected. We invite you to the 5th Run for Independence – a running festival in the Royal Baths, organized by the Independent Woman’s Foundation.

Let’s take a look at a few of them:

Stress – to collect thoughts or, on the contrary, to switch off, to cut off from daily problems for a while. Running is a great form of stress relief.

Intestines – better blood supply to the organs through physical activity also means a positive effect on digestive processes, and thus normalization of weight and harmonious metabolism.

Pancreas – this important organ is the body’s guardian in the fight against diabetes. By lowering blood sugar levels through physical activity, we relieve stress on the pancreas and reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes by up to 50%.

Joints and bones – as we strengthen our muscles, we also strengthen their scaffolding.

Did you know that…?
Running has been proven to be an activity that helps alleviate the discomfort associated with osteoarthritis and lowers the risk of osteoporosis.

Better overall condition. Thanks to running, we lower systolic blood pressure, cholesterol and triglyceride levels in the blood, making recreational runners much less likely to suffer heart attacks or hypercholesterolemia. High cholesterol, in turn, also means “clogged” blood vessels – so regular activity is also a supercharger for the circulatory system.

The 5th Run for Independence – a running festival in the Royal Baths

Can you coast on passion, good relationships, health and self-esteem?
Of course it is! – especially if one runs with courage and the right intention. That’s why the GentleWoman portal is taking over the media patronage of a great event – the 5th Run for Independence, which will be held already on August 27 in the Royal Baths in Warsaw. We encourage you to take off!

Is it worth it to start running? We have no doubt that they will! First, it is an extremely democratic activity. In most cases, you don’t need specialized equipment. You can run at any time and on any terrain. You don’t have to be an exceptionally physically fit person either – running is for almost everyone, whether you are active on a daily basis or not. Graduate the difficulty – start with small distances and a slower pace and if you feel more confident – gradually increase it. Running allows you to shed stress and often regain control over important things – after all, you decide the rhythm and the path you choose. Just like in life. You can run alone or in a group – there is always something for you. Running is undoubtedly inspiring – it can become not only an important physical activity, but also a passion, an activity that will entail significant changes. And we want to inspire health, challenge and independence. And that’s why GentleWoman is taking patronage of a very special event – the Run for Independence.
