​Here’s How Gen Z Is Making Running Cool Again​

πŸƒπŸΌβ€β™€οΈ Every generation has its own cultural legacy, which is defined by social movements, enduring memories, and similar life experiences.

😎 Now, Gen Z is in the middle of making running cool again, replacing weekends at the clubs and even dating apps.
