Not many people ever forget a first run. And not usually because it’s such an awesome experience. What many remember is how gripped with fear they felt. It’s not the fear of cars or dogs or even the discomfort of pushing your body. It’s that someone might see you … and laugh. “Look at that girl trying to work out. She’s not a runner.” They would find it hilarious that someone who clearly never intentionally sweats would be making an effort to do so.
