I started running in my lat 20’s. I hated running in school. I preferred to play soccer, volleyball or tennis. Running seemed like a burden. Once I went to college, sports disappeared from my life. That was ok for a while but once the scale headed in the wrong direction, I had to do something about it.
Running seemed to be the easy solution. No gear necessary. No major preparation.
If you want to run and don’t want to hate it, then just get out there and run. Running can do amazing things for your body and for your soul – but you’ve got to keep doing it. You’ve got to run through the sucky parts to get to the good stuff. Just get out there and run. And then run some more. Keep racking up the miles and somewhere along the way you’ll come to love it.
