Running is one of the simplest forms of exercise. But the El Paso heat does complicate things. The solution, of course is to go for a run early in the morning. But how do you motivate yourself to get out of bed and hit the pavement? Think about these benefits of running early:

Exercise gives you both mental and physical stimulation.It not only increases your alertness but also helps get more endorphins and adrenaline flowing through the body. The benefits can be felt well into the early afternoon.

A five-minute run every day can reduce your risk of heart disease by half. Research shows that runners have a 27% lower risk of early death and a 30% lower risk of death from cardiovascular problems.This is true for all runners, no matter how fast they run or for how long.

A morning jog will boost your metabolism, helping your body burn calories all through the day.It also means that you will likely feel hungry after you finish, making you less likely to skip the most important meal of the day.

Recent studies have shown that runners are actually less likely to develop joint problems which was thought to be the contrary for many years.The reason: runners are more likely to be in better condition and thus carry less weight reducing the amount of strain on the joints.
