Health knowledge made personal
In the course of reading about running Iâ??ve come across many articles that focus on motivation, running form, minimalism, and places and reasons to run. Iâ??ve read stories by people who have accomplished ultra marathons, Ironmans and amazing consecutive day streaks.
What I havenâ??t found, however, are many articles talking about the rest of us.
By the rest of us I mean people like me. People who enjoy running but who are not built like Kenyan marathoners. People who work full time and then need to convince their spouse of why itâ??s necessary for them to spend several more hours running. People who canâ??t explain, when asked directly and honestly, why they exert themselves to the point of exhaustion on a regular basis. People like me will never win a road race, probably not even a local 5K, but constantly enter races anyway.
With this in mind, Iâ??ve developed a blog to talk about the things that are not discussed elsewhere, such as:
- How to know if youâ??re addicted to ibuprofen
- How to know if you sweat a lot more than normal people
- What to do when youâ??re in the middle of a 6 mile loop while pushing a running stroller and your child announces that sheâ??s bored and has to pee
My hope is that my blog will entertain, inform, and provide a place where normal people can talk about being runners without feeling inferior or intimidated. Thanks for visiting!
