Spring time! cue collective sigh of relief from everyone feeling cooped up during winter… It's the season of new life and sunshine (ohhh, glorious sunshine). Almost everyone has reasons to be excited for the coming of spring, but we're going to focus on a group for whom spring adds an extra, well, spring to their step: runners. Now wait. Before you say "Oh, that's not me because I'm not a runner," hear us out. At some point in our lives, each of us has probably seen someone running and thought, "Hmm, I should probably try that." Well, we agree. You should try it. As far as being active goes, running is about the most approachable option. It doesn't require a ton of specialized equipment, it can fit almost any schedule, and it can be a group or solo activity. It's true that it's an acquired taste for some people (similar to winter camping or canned Salmon), so don't feel disheartened if you tried it once and didn't fall in love immediately. You're not alone. Instead, think of it like your New Year's resolutions some of the best predictors of success are being realistic and having a game-plan. So let's focus on that.
