Going out for a quick, daily run may be just as effective as a long-distance jaunt when it comes to prolonging your life, said a study out this week.People who exercised by running showed a 30 percent lower risk of death and a 45 percent lower risk of dying from cardiovascular disease than people who did not run at all.Most were white; about one quarter of those in the study were women.U.S. health authorities recommend 75 minutes per week of vigorous exercise, or 150 minutes (a half hour a day, five days a week) of moderate-intensity exercise.
