Try Something You Think You Don'T Like

This Sparked Me!

I avoided running at ALL costs (even when I was 110 pounds and 14 years old.) I hated the out of breath feeling, but I started a 5 training program to increase my endurance, and guess what.... I actually like running. I'm not out in freezing temps or the rain I'm not THAT into it, but I like my treadmill or a short trail walk/run. I never thought I would, but once I learned HOW, and accepted it was a process I have loved it.

I highly recommend investing in shoes (something I didn't believe when I first started.) Take it from my knee injury before I made the investment, the proper shoes MAKE THE DIFFERENCE! Go to a running store and invest a little in them, they will take you far and save you a TON of pain!
