What r-u-n-s while you run?
Running, I have found in recent months, provides a venue for experiences that one may or may not choose to share with others. Sometimes, as they are happening, I wonder to myself, "Does this happen to other runners, and how do they deal with it?" Sometimes, I think about things that could happen while I'm running - things related to the body and all its marvelous workings - and I wonder, "How would I deal with it?" The long run, in particular, lends itself to these revelations and ruminations - sometimes, at the same time!
So, when I opened recent e-mail from active.com, and found a short article on the subject, I was thrilled. Well, I was intrigued, really - (okay, the 12 yr-old in me was peeking out!) - by the title - The 6 Grossest Things About Running - and thought, "Hmmmm... I wonder which 6 the author is writing about," and then thought, "Finally, answers to my questions!" Last thought: "Wonder if anyone else is wondering?
If you are, then read on, fellow running friend. The author compares marathon training/long runs to childbirth. See if you relate to these experiences OR have now been enlightened. Either way, it's an eye opener!
Then, sign up for the active.com newsletter, if you don't already receive it... always a good read.
Happy running, friends....
