The Run Commuter in Urban China Magazine

We’re going global!

The latest edition of Urban China magazine featured a very cool article on “Community-based Micro-sports,” devoting a two-page spread to run commuting (and a pic of TRC’s Josh and Kyle).  They even included a bit about the Atlanta BeltLine and Historic Fourth Ward Park.

The section on run commuting features general tips on gear selection and packing, choosing a route, and cleaning up once you arrive.  Other pages cover running at work during lunch hours, after work and on weekends with friends, and fitting in workouts when you only have a short amount of time available.

Editor Tao Shiqi writes, (and this is translated very loosely using Google Translate):

Although we in China are successful in competitive sports, our public awareness of fitness is still in its infancy.  A 2010 survey in Jiangsu Province revealed that more than 80.3% of the respondents do not have any fixed fitness habits.  Micro-movement is a more social and effective way for city people to regain the habit of doing exercise. From the use of fragmented time, micro fitness is an intermediate state with aspects of commuting, socializing, and working, to the movement regarding habits of life and enjoying the fun of it all.

For the non-run commuters out there – how do you exercise when you are short on time?
