While I’m more of an exercise hobbyist than an enthusiast, there’s always been something so satisfying about working up a sweat during a good run.
I've been running on and off for the past fifteen years or so and I've learned, only today, the most important thing beginner runners should know: get fitted for your running shoes.
I'm not new to running but it's been a while. I'm well acquainted with the positive effects of the sport: it's mood-altering, energy-boosting, and brain-sharpening, among other things. Somehow, during periods when I've stopped running for one reason for another, I always seem to forget running simply makes me feel good.
I know one of my goals for January was to reignite my fitness regimen, but I'm finding it much harder to do than I initially thought.
