Is this peer pressure? Sure.
Am I concerned? Heck no!
This “peer pressure” is what I love about the running community! We all love running and want to share our passion with others. We recognize that anyone can be a runner. Running is not about speed. It’s about putting one foot in front of the other, breathing in fresh air, and getting those endorphins going.
What better group norms to emulate than those of the running community? Forget fast food and video games, let’s try more fruits, veggies, and exercise! Bring on the “you can do it!” cheerleaders and the kindly offered pieces of advice. Society could be a whole lot healthier with a little more positive peer pressure.
So go ahead. peer pressure me. My body and mind will thank you.
