By running to work, you are combining two things you normally do separately – running and commuting. You no longer have to try to fit in a run when you get home at night! There are many other reasons why people run commute, including;

  • Training: Easier to stick to a training plan. You can increase your weekly mileage. Running with a pack increases endurance. Two runs per day can increase your overall fitness.
  • Environmental: Aside from telecommuting, it’s the cleanest commute option possible.
  • Practical: Low cost (you probably already have all the gear). Some are car-free or live in a car-light family.
  • For the love of running!
