I couldn't resist sharing these fun numbers for your Thursday.
The Mizuno website has a fun interactive with these numbers. It's fun to imagine what the world would be like if everyone ran!
To add to theirs, I thought of my own, less-statistical list of benefits:
People in cars would never yell "Run, Forrest, run!" at runners.
Cars would pay far more attention to runners in cross-walks with the right-of-way.
And I would never have to be ashamed of my pedicure-less feet in sandals, because everyone would understand the importance of keeping your calluses.
