Outdoor exertion was strictly prohibited to everyone after the Great Smog of Delhi last year. But if you're a runner, we feel your pain. One cannot just quit going for the daily run. Running and any other outdoor workout requires you to consume more oxygen than when your body is at rest. Naturally, you end up breathing more polluted air than otherwise. To keep yourself healthy, it's hence very important to wear a face mask with the N99 certification which is the only mask type that can filter out particulate matter (PM2.5)
