This week, I want to dive into what it means to be a runner. A lot of people believe that they’re not a real runner if they can’t run a 5k under 30 minutes and don’t take walk breaks. They also believe that they have to run at a certain speed to be a serious runner. But is that true? What does it mean to be a runner?
Listen in as I break down why we feel the need to deny that we are, in fact, a runner and how to start owning it. I’ll also tackle the assumption many of us have about how running has to look a certain way to count. Plus, learn about my current obsession/ritual that will help the tired and sore muscles you’re about to earn.
