Sure they'll tell you it's good for your health and stuff, but there's more to running than that.
So I'm going to tell you 5 things I learned about running, no one told me!
1. No, it does nót get any easier!
Yeah I know. Bummer, right?! But I've been running for 13 years now, and I can honestly say it has not become easier! I'm still not light footed and running like a gazelle. I'm still lumbering along.
2. A new outfit can really boost morale
Now, they won't tell you this, because it sounds a bit flighty. But buying new running clothes can really help to get you out the door next time you have to go for a run.
3. There's a fine line between discipline and compulsion
Lots of runners get jittery if they don't get their run in. They feel like something is óff. That's their compulsion to run talking. I myself suffer from this affliction too. I like to say I'm very disciplined, but sometimes I wonder if I've crossed over to the dark side of being a bit compulsive.
4. Runners can be really annoying!
There are lots of runners out there who'll tell you: 'Oh I'm súch a slow runner! Everyone passes me by when I run.' And just when you start to feel better about your own pace they add something like: 'It took me 45 minutes and 67 seconds to run 10 kilometers! Can you believe that? I'm sooooo slow.'
5. Running can become your best friend
Even though running does not get easier, running cán become your very best friend. It's always there for you, and you can always count on it to make you feel better!
