I was never a runner. A dancer, yes. A reluctant runner, sure. But I was never big on it. And I now know why that is: I had never gotten over the hump. I had never done it regularly enough for it to feel like anything other than punishment. Until I started training for Seawheeze Half Marathon this summer. Then I had no choice but to run regularly. Out of pure fear. And that’s a powerful motivator.
I got over that hump and learned to love running. So much that I read Born to Run (thank you, Katie!) and haven’t stopped talking about the book since. One of the biggest lessons I learned from my experience — and my reading? Run far and run often.
