Running Creates Confidence
A friend recently asked me, “Why do you run?” I said, “In a given day, sometimes I hate the one hour that I spend running. But I love the way that one hour makes me feel for the rest of the day.”
There is a mysterious quality that running adds to your life. I don’t know if it’s the way it sculpts your legs or the knowledge that you’ve cleared seven miles before most people wake up. I think true runners walk a little taller. They hold a confidence that doesn’t come from anything else. They’re strong and they know it.
If you’ve never considered running, go to your doctor to make sure you’re physically fit and then, with a physician’s okay, hit the trails. It’s free, easy to learn and will lead you on the long road of being healthier and happier.
