PSA: Running is Hard!
So often I hear the words “but I’m not a runner” or “running is so hard“. Yes, my dear friends running is hard. It’s hard for the newbies and it’s hard for the old-timers like myself. In the same way push-ups never seem to get any easier neither does running.
Yes, there are days when you hit your stride and feels a little bit easier, but overall running is hard!
At this point in my training every single run feels like an accomplishment, no matter what the distance. As soon as the run is complete I immediately start looking around for someone to high-five. (Something tells me that “high-fiving” strangers on random days in Central Park would be a little embarrassing.)
I love both of these comments. To those of you who say or think that you are not a runner, but you’re out there running and training for races change your perspective. You ARE a runner.
*Good luck to all of you who are running the More/Fitness Magazine 1/2 Marathon this upcoming Sunday!
