I've always had a difficult relationship with running. On paper it would seem as if we'd get along well because I'm an introvert who shies away from team sports. I even participated in track and field competitions during highschool intramurals, and was a member of the track and field team for a few months. A friend who trains for triathlons even pushed me to take up running more seriously because she said I have a runner's body. But despite all that, there was simply no spark between me and running.
However, something clicked in the past few months and instead of my usual once- a- month- if- I'm- feeling- up- to- it- run, I found myself going for weekly, then twice weekly runs, and before I knew it, I was actually running 3x a week and was even looking forward to it. Believe me, no one was more surprised at this than I was.
