Running is another great and economical way to help shed unwanted pounds. According to Runner’s World:
It probably takes you less than 10 minutes to run off 100 calories — a rate that leaves most other forms of exercise in the dust.
Obviously, running faster should result in a better burn, but every time your foot hits the pavement or trail, you’re taking a step in the right direction. The cost: approximately $50 for a decent pair of running shoes.
