Sorry Bruce Springsteen, this baby was not born to run. At least, that’s what my highschool track coach would tell you. Make no mistake: I would have lost every race during the year I ran for him, except for one time a competitor broke her ankle halfway through our 800m, safely securing my spot for second last. HURRAY!
It wasn’t until years later while reading BTR that I realized I just wasn’t born to run track. I wasted a lot of time stuck in a sour mentality about running, but no longer! In this episode, Steph and I talk about what works for us when we run. I think the conclusion we came to is that you really need to make running your own to fall in love with it. We talk apps, music, warm-ups, mantras, strides, and more. Listen to it right here! You can also now subscribe and rate us on iTunes.
A couple links to things mentioned in the episode: that Nike+ Running app Steph loves, No Meat Athlete’s primer on minimalist running, MapMyRun, and the dailymile app. In case you’re interested, here are our running shoes: Steph’s and Laura’s. And here are links to the Joy the Baker and Ricky Gervais podcasts!
