There’s a saying among runners “never trust the first mile” or in my case two. It’s not usually a neutral mile either it usually just sucks and sucks hard. Here’s a secret runners aren’t telling you unlike most things in life this doesn’t get better but so far it hasn’t gotten worse either. It’s funny but when I started running longer distances I realized I liked running. That first mile feeling is what keeps a lot of people from getting into running or dropping away from it over time.
