If there is one movement man is made for than it is running! We have just read a very interesting book called Born to Run from the author Christopher McDougall. In this book is a marvelous reflection of how man was destined to evolve to a running species. It is certain that our current generations lack this fact of the evolution albeit not all of us. The fact that we have become so intelligent and that this has certainly contributed to the fact that we do not run as often as we should or that we simply do not run anymore is very revealing. It seems that our brain has become so efficient in convincing the rest of our bodily functions that the less you do the better it is as there are so many other ways of moving that require almost no efforts. We have become masters in energy efficiency (at least at humanoid level)!
However, for those who still have the passion for running (the handful of us that are left out there) there is this sense of liberty we experience when we go out for a stroll. Personally We find it very inspiring when we can run on different terrains and take the view of different landscapes. That is not always a given fact and is rather a luxury if you have this at your disposal. Some might say it is part of the inspiration of running to discover new tracks to devour, others (who are less adventurous or have little time for discovering anyways) care for the well known as it brings them instant data of the relished efforts or the tough nut still to crack.
As it happens, at Playitas Resort, we have tried to cater for all of your inspirations. For our running guests we have created a runners map/booklet that contains some inspiring routes with indications of distance and difficulties to expect. It is light and easy to read so as to not be a hassle or burden carrying it along for the stride. For those who want to join the runners world (and believe us, we are all made for running, no excuse that you are the exception on the rule) we offer a slow and guided build up over the period of your time at Playitas so that if you want, you can crown it with a small run to see if your efforts have served you well (guaranteed).
So next time you are looking for some runners paradise, look up what you can do at Playitas Resort and if so, give us a call and we will guide you to your perfect fit.
Oh, and one more thing, running is very basic but needs some expert advise for you to start right. Let’s run and… free your mind! 🙂
