We don’t get enough exercise in our modern city. To ensure that we are at our top form it is necessary to dedicate time to exercise, and running is a very effective way to do that’s low cost and can be fun when done with others. Anyone can run, we’re built for it through evolution.
Yu: I’m proposing that this project would be a great way to connect neighbors together by organizing runs that loop a neighborhood and enlisting participation from the neighborhood so that they get to socialize with each other in the context of supporting the runners. One of the problems of training for long distance is the need to carry enough water and food, as well as get access to toilets. Running in a 2 mile loop with a water/toilet station provides a format that approximates a marathon run.
