Update Date: Nov 08, 2014 08:37 PM EST

In the recent years, an increasing number of people are signing up for marathons and half marathons to support various causes. Evidently, more and more people are realizing the importance of it. 

Marathon helps one push one's physical boundaries. It helps runners realize about their endurance limits. 

If you think running 40-odd kilometers is ridiculous, and is punishment, think again. Here are some reasons why running marathon is good for you. 

Start of a healthier lifestyle

According to experts, at the end of the day, nothing bad can come out of running. You will be able to get more exercise and be fit. Also, running can help you be in great shape. 

Challenge yourself

At some points in our life we begin doubting our own capabilities. Running is a way to challenge yourself. You can compete with yourself to run the next one, beating your own time. 

Give back to society in someway

These days, most of the marathons are associated with a cause, and participating in one can give you a sense of satisfaction. The satisfaction arises from the fact that we are somehow giving back to the society in a one way or another. 

Devote much needed time for yourself

We are so busy living our lives, we rarely get a chance to explore ourselves. Every morning, running with some great music plugged into ears is the perfect way to start your day.
