Fdip131: The Big Boom

Running was adopted by a society who had been lulled into a false sense of security within the confines of their all too comfortable, technology empowered life of sedentary doom.  In America, as in other countries…technological advances negated our need to rise off the couch and hunt, gather and endure physical labor.  But as the population grew unhealthy and overweight, they turned to both the sports and medical experts for an answer…and that answer was so basic, simple and pure that the appeal to lace up a pair of running shoes could not be denied.  The explosion resulting from the first running boom was a revolution which continues today…a revolution which you and I are very much a part of, as we take back our bodies and our lives and become the runners we all were meant to be.

Fdip129: The Hazards of Running

ust about everything in this life offers hazards and benefits.  We balance comfort with pain, satisfaction with disappointment, and safety with danger every time we lace up our shoes and take to the road.  It’s quite obvious, to those of us who call ourselves runners, that the benefits of our sport far outweighs the dangers, it is important for us to be conscious of those hazards not only for our personal safety, but to allow us to logically counter the arguments that the non-runner might offer as an excuse not to join us on the road.
