Jogging Helps, Not Hurts, Your Knees

Contrary to the stories we’ve all heard, jogging is good for your joints. Unless you’re more than 20 pounds overweight, or you’ve had knee injuries, running will actually improve your knees. This is because the exercise “appears to stimulate cartilage to repair to minor damage”. The benefit appears even if you’re in your 70s.

So what excuse do you have now? “I’m 30 pounds overweight.” Well then start jogging and get in shape!  Oh wait…
