I remember this episode of “Becker” when he said “The only reason to run is when you’re being chased by someone” or something like that…
I know no matter how hard we work to keep ourselves alive, we’ll die on a date and time predefined by god which no one knows except him (Well, thats what’s mentioned in Quran). Yet we must consider the reasons (Naa5eth bel asbab).
Some doctors found out that running in early ages are less likely to be having heart disease, cancer or neurological diseases.
Too much details to explain, so I’ll just leave the REUTERS link.
