Find Your Stride
I donâ€™t think there is anyone thatâ€™s in the middle when it comes to running. You either love it or hate it. I was one of those ones that hated it. Sure, there are some naturally great runners, but I think most people have to work for it. Running the mile in high school was always the worst day of my life. I wasnâ€™t fast, I couldnâ€™t breathe and I was always in pain afterwards. I was the student that got an â€œAâ€ for effort and an â€œFâ€ for time. I didnâ€™t understand how people could breathe through the running. How are you that fast? Donâ€™t you feel like dying? Am I that out of shape? Granted, I was always a little chubby growing up and didnâ€™t play sports, but I was in the Marching Band; played piccolo. Clearly, I had good lung capacity.
