If you’ve missed the chance to bring your family with you in the Mai Dubai City Half Marathon or yesterday’s Mai Dubai Community Run – you still have a chance to join next month!
Running is a great and easy way to get the whole family to achieve a healthier lifestyle. All it takes is a pair of good running shoes, a safe environment, and a lot of motivation. It’s already time for winter and this is the perfect time to get your family into running. Here are a few of the many benefits of running with your family.
Running requires a lot of discipline. Runners usually have to wake up early in the morning and maintain a healthy diet to be able to run effectively. Although your training and diet don’t have to be as intense, running will still teach you and your family the importance of determination, time management, and perseverance. Being able to participate and finish in a race can also help build your family members self-esteem. The Mai Dubai Community Run is a family-friendly race event coming soon at the Ripe Market in Dubai Police Academy. Register now!
It’s very easy to get caught up in life and not have enough time for family bonding. Today, many families believe that they are too busy with work, school and many other things. We suggest going for a run as a way of bonding with your family. Joining a community run, especially the Mai Dubai Community Run, will motivate the whole family to train together which can be extremely beneficial in reducing stress and building a better bond. Furthermore, it’s a good opportunity to get to know each other better rather than watching a movie or playing a game which doesn’t involve engaging with one another.
Children are also more likely to gain more life skills at home than they do anywhere else. This is why it’s important to really think about how you bond with them. By training for the Mai Dubai Community Run, you’ll be able to teach them the importance of hard work and teamwork. Not only that, but running will also teach the importance of goal setting both as an individual and as a team.
Let’s admit it, running boosts our self-confidence. By running with your family, you can set running goals and track your progress together. Once you start to see how your running performance is improving you’ll surely feel accomplished and feel that sense of pride. Your self-confidence will improve and carry over to other areas of your life such as work, school, or social life.
Joining a running event in Dubai like the Mai Dubai Community Run is a great way to receive medals as a family. We know that receiving a medal can give some people a sense of accomplishment which can also help boost confidence. Since the Mai Dubai Community Run has shorter distances such as than the Mai Dubai City Half Marathon, it will be much easier for you and your family to finish the race!
We’re all aware that the rise of technology has led us to stare at our screens the whole day. If you feel like you aren’t getting enough physical activities throughout the day, try running. You don’t have to run for hours to be healthy, a 30-minute run is guaranteed to burn between 200 to 500 calories a day and that’s a fantastic way to maintain a healthy lifestyle. When your family gets used to running, they will be able to enjoy it and make running a lifelong habit.
