Cortisol, also known as stress hormone, is released with any form of stress. A run of at least 20 minutes lowers Cortisol levels, which means you experience less stress. Running therefore ensures that you can better deal with stress and are less susceptible to stress-related complaints, such as burnout.
In addition, research by British researchers Roth and Holmes shows that people who run regularly are better able to cope with violent events, such as the death of a loved one.
So running regularly has not only physical but also mental benefits. So let's run! Through Strava you can sign up for the group 'MIB - Run Together'. Here you can keep track of your own sports or take up the challenge with others in the group.
