Running is an activity that fellow runners, like you and I, gather pleasure from. We look forward to these feelings of pleasure every day when we lace up our shoes.
To the non-runner, or someone who finds any physical activity abhorrent, this love of running is an alien emotion. These sufferers on THE COUCH OF DOOM consider the act of running as equivalent to the act of smashing a brick into ones forehead: it neither seems like a good idea, nor would it bring pleasure to do so.
So, how does one fall in love with running?
Once you start paying more attention to your body in motion, you’ll begin to feel the urge to take that daily break out on the roads. You’ll begin to feel an infatuation with eating and living healthier, to enhance and improve your daily performance. You might even start subscribing to a few running related podcasts…especially as you start to realize that you could run faster than some goofy little podcaster from New England, who really isn’t all that and a bag of chips…and the next thing you know you’ll be eating those chips from within a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for the purpose of sodium replacement and protein muscular recovery.
And maybe, just maybe your new found love for running will work both ways and you’ll find that running is in love with you.
