A little more than a year ago, I would have never said this. I would have told you that running caused a lot of pain and frustration. And it makes you feel like a complete klutz (when I first decided I wanted to run, my gait was less than smooth, and I felt clunky!).
As strange as it is, I had to practice to get better at running. At learning how to listen to my body, how to breathe, how to adequately hydrate myself, and how to deal with the disappointment of not performing at the level I desired.
I am so thankful that I now look forward to my runs and feel like it allows me to see my life from a more positive perspective.
