Study shows running can be contagious

Study shows running can be contagious

The gender differences proved to be especially illuminating: Men were strongly influenced to run by other men (no surprises there), and to a lesser extent by women. If those friends burn an extra 10 calories, that person will end up burning 3.5 more calories than usual.

The results were impressive.

According to the study: "On the same day, on average, an additional kilometer run by friends can inspire someone to run an additional 3/10th of a kilometer and an additional ten minutes run by friends can inspire someone to run three minutes longer". More calories burned for one runner would mean more calories burned for his or her friends. "Our findings are consistent with both arguments, but the effects are much larger for downward comparisons than for upward comparisons", the paper said. Influence among same sex pairs is strong while influence among mixed sex pairs is weaker.

Research suggests that hanging out with slimmer pals can help you lose weight; having a lonely relative, neighbor, or friend increases your own risk of loneliness; and happiness spreads among strangers.

"Knowing the running behaviors of your friends as shared on social networks can cause you to run farther, faster, and longer", said study author Sinan Aral, in a news release. For starters, numerous studies are survey-based and rely on accurate self-reporting, which is something we are notoriously bad at.

We're told that having an exercise buddy encourages us to work out. Plus, people who are geographically close are likely to be impacted by the same outside influences.
