Get fit, be mindful and discover joy through one of our favourite pastimes.

You don’t need much gear to get started and you can do it any time you like, virtually anywhere you are – it’s no wonder jogging is one of the most popular physical activities. And with health benefits ranging from building immune defence and stronger bones to weight-loss and increased life-expectancy, it’s a good thing that more than 8% of Australians regularly don their trainers to get fit and burn calories. Here are a handful of books by enthusiasts and experts offering tips and meditations on why running is the best way forward.
