We all see it, the joggers getting their daily exercise in, either in the morning or at night, in the gym or on the sidewalks, even on TV – running is all around us. There are two types of people – the ones who enjoy running and the others who think running 13 miles is crazy. But how do people jump into the running world? How do you become a runner? Although there are plenty answers, the main one is this: creating the mind set in yourself that you CAN be a runner and you will enjoy it. Yes, it is true running isn’t for everyone and that’s why there are plenty of different workout machines now that provide the same cardio as running does but protects your knees from the impact running creates. Anyone can start running, no matter who you are and what type of physical shape you are in. There are numerous training plans today to help people begin in their running experience. The biggest obstacle will be yourself; your mind will tell you to quit running before your body does. The human body is extraordinary, and we do not give ourselves enough credit because we constantly think our bodies will collapse at any second when we start to perform and physical exercise. Now don’t get me wrong, the beginning process will be hard and tiring, and will make you want to quit. Just keep this in mind: running will get easier the more you do it and the easier it gets, the more time you will have to actually enjoy going on your daily jog. We can all become the runners we see on the sidewalks or in movies and it does not take much to start that process. Just lace up your sneakers and walk out the door to get moving!
