If the idea of running is daunting and overwhelming and seems impossible for you ... I want you to read this. The simple truth of this persons journey is amazing.
"I started January first and have run every day since. These distances are without stopping.
It went something like this…
(I have been driving the course to get a true distance)
Day 1 – 400m and felt like dying
Day 2 – 1 k
Day 3 – 1.5 k’s
Day 11 – 2.5 k’s
Day 17 – 3.2 k’s
Day 20 – 4.2 k’s
Day 23 – 5.2 k’s
Day 27 – 6.5 k’s
I try and push the distance further every day.
Goal is to run 10 k’s and to feel happy again.
Thanks for the inspiration."
UPDATE: They did it. 10ks. Done. And now running pretty much every day is part of their life. A vital, wonderful, empowering part of their life.
Read those distances again. You can do that. 400m. You can do that. Start. Run.
