Researchers may now look at cognitive functions in toddlers such as how well they do on an IQ test, their proficiency at language, and how easily they manage their emotions to predict how slowly they will be walking at midlife, she continued, adding that Gait speed was not only an indicator of ageing but also an indicator of lifelong brain health.

"We didn't investigate running speed in this study, but typically people who love running are also able to walk very fast because running keeps the brain's capacity to control bipedal locomotion at its sharpest," the researcher explained, and added that running was an excellent way to keep the body and mind in shape.

Now, those who have been procrastinating going on a run to keep their physical health in shape have an added motivation for it.
