Most people find that running is extremely hard and challenging, but this is only true until you actually try it. Once you get used to it, running is very beneficial for both physical and mental health and it can be particularly enjoyable in the fall. Check out three good reasons why this fall is the perfect time to take up running.

Cool Weather

Just in case you didn’t know, running in hot weather is extremely hard and sometimes even impossible. Most runners think that running in winter is actually easier than running in hot weather. That’s exactly why cool fall temperatures are perfect for running because it’s not too hot or too cold outside.

Marathon Season

The main reason why experienced runners love fall is that this is the marathon season. Even though it’s too late to start preparing for a race now, all these marathons that are held in September and October are an excellent motivation to start preparing for spring races.

Beautiful Scenery

Even if you don’t like colder weather, there is something truly magical about fall. This is the perfect moment to spend more time in nature and enjoy wonderful scenery, and going for a run will help you do that.
