It’s marathon season, that time of year when those eccentric plodders among us run ridiculous amounts of miles to train for an endurance event a reasonable person would consider absurd. It is also the time of year that I have to remind myself that there was a day I couldn’t run one mile, or even once around the track. That’s why I’m thankful that readers comment and ask how to get started.
In the past I’ve posted articles about how to get started as a runner, and also shared advice on how to push through the beginning of a run, inspiration and other related topics, so I thought I’d link them here for your convenience.
The way I like to erase trepidation and intimidation that beginners feel is to remind them that running is an activity that we’ve all been doing since we let go the coffee table as toddlers. Always remember, it’s only running!
