Could You Be A Runner?
Are you running curious?
Still think running isn’t your jam?
I hear people tell me all the time “they just can’t run” or “I don’t like running”.
I want to get vulnerable with you for a second and share my health journey and how I got started with running. After 18 wonderful, but grueling, years, I let my Leander Band Family know I would be walking away from leading the program.
One day, I went for a run… Well, really it was a walk. I was able to run, but not very far and not very fast. But it was a start. I didn’t have the right shoes. I didn’t have a headset. I didn’t know what I wanted to achieve. I just knew I wanted to feel better about myself.
Looking back, here are the keys that made me successful.
Running Coach - I hired a running coach. My coach helped me develop goals and strategies for reaching my goals. My coach designed a daily program that met me where I was with a weekly program.
Great Places to Run - I discovered I loved finding new and interesting places to run. This gave me the opportunity to get outside and take in sights and sounds of the world around me.
Find a reason or purpose - My reason to run was that I wanted my health back. Maybe your purpose is losing weight or having more energy to play with your kids. Maybe you want to run a 5K with friends. Everyone has a reason for improving their health. What is your reason?
