Three Part Study: Running


Let’s talk about running…


People run for various reasons. Some people run to get in shape while others may take up running to “blow off steam”.

Either one… running is not for everyone. It’s something you have to work at.

Running is a great form of exercise. Not only do you whip yourself into shape, but you also may gain the opportunity to build a relationship with someone through running.

I’ll be the first to admit that I am not a runner. I do not like running. 

One reason that I do not like to run is because I sweat really easily. When I start to run, I feel like I am standing under my shower head just letting the water roll down my face.

Unlike jogging, running allows you to make it to your destination a lot quicker than if you were jogging.

I like to run in the evenings with my friends. I do not want to wake up any earlier than I have to be up for class. With that being said, I’m hoping some college women can agree with me on sleeping in until the very last second before you have to get up.

For those that consider themselves “early risers”, running in the morning is a great way to kickstart your metabolism for the day!

Running is not hard. It’s not a hard concept to grasp either. It just takes a lot of time, dedication, and effort. Look at running as a sport… you have to train and get your body into shape to build your endurance.

By no means am I an expert, but I’d like to share two “beginners tips to running:

  1. If you are a beginner when it comes to running…pace yourself. Don’t try to jump right into it for this you are only setting yourself up for failure. I recommend walking for a little bit and then running…almost as if you are alternating between the two.

2. I also recommend picking an easy route to run on. Do not run on a trail that has a lot of hills incorporated within the trail. You’ll run out of breath easily.

I would like to take a moment to encourage you if you are interested in running. It is not the easiest thing in the world to do, but that doesn’t make it impossible. Never give up!
