People always say, “I hate running.” I do too, but I have to. I love being able to get up and go, I love feeling the wind on my face, I love being outside and by myself. When I go to the gym I often find myself just doing cardio. Lifting weights for me is unappealing. I’m already a big guy, I have no use for trying to get big. I want to be trim and feel great. I want to be able to always beat my kid at any sport. Dad is a beast at anything.
Once you stop, you’ll have to work hard to get it back. Running pays off in more ways than just physically. It’s great for mental health as well. Go out and run.
