Running can be extremely therapeutic, enjoyable and fun, but doesn’t always feel that way starting out. Really enjoyed this article by Allison Norton over at Lauren Conrad on how to learn to love running! Here’s a snippet of her article:

2. Don’t start off too big.
If you’ve never run before and you try going for 3 miles your first time, you’re not going to have fun (and you will probably be in some pain the next day). As with all things, take baby steps. If you need to run for a minute then walk for a minute when beginning, do what your body is comfortable with. Start off slow, and work your way up to longer distances and faster speeds.

5. Download some fun apps.
These days, there are apps for almost anything you want to do. The same goes for running. One app called Couch to 5k helps beginners with a mostly sedentary lifestyle ease into a 5k run. The Nike+ Running app is my personal favorite because it tells me how long I’m going, how fast I’m going, how many calories I’m burning, and even lets me select a playlist from my iPhone to power up my run.

Women’s Running Community (WRC) was created to inspire girls and women to choose health and wellness over our culture’s harmful obsession with having the “perfect” runner’s body type, weight or shape. Our goal is to educate the world that health, beauty, and wellness come in many forms and that no one body type, shape, size, culture or weight is more worthy of respect, love and acceptance than another. We want to challenge the industry leaders and media creators to expand their vision of what a runner or being healthy looks like.
