Get out there and run and do it with gusto. The first time might be intimidating. The second time might feel slightly awkward. But before long you will see that your trepidation may have been unwarranted.

Stop Changing!

Heather Mayer Irvine

Resting is part of training. I've confirmed what I sort of already knew: I'm not built for running streaks. I'm built for hard workouts three to five days a week with lots of cross training, physical therapy and foam rolling. But I've also confirmed that I'm stubborn with myself.

Anthony Romeo

I won't win these races. I will finish behind thousands of other men and women. And that's okay. If I can finish an entire thin-crust pizza, I can finish a race. I am a chubby runner, and I get to keep running for as long as I hate doing it.
