You can’t appreciate the term runner’s high until you experience it yourself, and once you do, you’ll be addicted for life because there is truly no other feeling like it in the world.

Although many of us would like to just get up and run, it is hard to find time between working, cooking, cleaning, and all the stressful activities of each day.

This is when we need to get creative and try to make the most out of our time constraints. We’ve put together a few running exercises for people with little time on their hands.
