I’m doing a series of blogs for the England Athletics #RunTogether website. The theme is bits and bobs that catch my imagination about running and exercising, and sometimes ageing is thrown into the mix too.
Why On Earth Would You Run Till It Hurts?
A non-running, non-sporty friend was chatting to me and expressed her utter bewilderment at the pain we runners seem to put ourselves through. She’s noticed the expressions on our faces as we cross the finishing line of a race and thought “why would anyone put themselves through that?” And I thought, “hmm. That’s a good question.” So I put it out on Twitter and got some interesting answers. Then I wrote my blog about it for the #RunTogether website. You can read it here.
