They say that getting started is the hardest part. That is certainly true for running. Those first few times out the door, your legs and lungs will burn. It will not be fun. You will be tired and sore afterwards and may even taste blood in your throat.
However, I assure you, that it gets better from there. Once you have been running consistently for awhile, you will feel better. Your muscles will get used to the effort and will look and feel better. Your lungs will get more powerful and you won’t even breath hard during most runs. Once you are fit, you will start to experience the fabled Runner’s High. You will be able to go faster and farther.
It takes dedication and determination but once you get in shape, running is a fun and relaxing activity. Running isn’t torture.
