I don’t recall that I could ever run well. Despite having good stamina, I couldn’t run any long distance properly, even as teenager. Later in my forties, when I started exercising again through gym and aerobics, I made some more attempts at running. I would run one or two kilometers for few days and I would either get knee pain or pain in the arches of my feet. Eventually, I would give up running.
Now at an unspeakable age, I run 10K+ on weekly basis with few short runs of 3 or 4 Kms thrown in on weekdays. Here is My running log of recent months after I acquired a Garmin GPS and HRM.
It does feel good.
This story is for us, who carry some urge within us, so that we don’t give in and give ourselves up.
