Running initially simply means moving forward at a faster pace on one's feet in an upright posture in such a way that both soles gradually detach themselves from the ground for a brief moment at a time. In the courses offered by the University Sports Center, however, regular exercise and especially running in its various forms is also a synonym for enjoyment and well-being as well as performance and dynamism and the basis for a healthy life.
