One of the greatest things about living up North (apart from fish & chips) is the countryside. Fortunately, we are blessed in having some of the nicest landscapes in the country. On a typical morning, I closely resemble a zombie- eyes half shut, stumbling around and a slight (okay, a big) hint of grumpiness. Nevertheless, it has been scientifically proven that exercise releases endorphins that instantly make you feel better. It also has a lasting effect, making you more alert throughout the day. As much as I love the mocha latte's from college, I must admit that after a good run, I feel so fresh! Once you get over the feeling of:
"oh my golly gosh, I'm so out of breath *huff,huff* I wanna sit down. Why is my throat hurting, is that normal? Or have I swallowed a pebble?!"
..It really is an enjoyable activity. Whether you're on your own or with a running buddy, I strongly recommend a good jog to set you off on your day. Although I spent a big majority of time filming myself running into the distance and then running back to press the stop button on my camera, I still think it is a very active thing to do!
