The 5 Best Things About Being A Newbie

Being a beginner at anything can be scary—here are a few reasons you should embrace your newbie status!

  1. Every day brings a rapid improvement in your fitness, even if it doesn’t feel like it. Once you’re a seasoned runner, you’ll think back fondly on a time when it was possible to run faster and farther every day.
  2. You have an excuse to buy a ton of new gear—including cool shoes!
  3. Running helps you see your city or town in a totally new light and explore side streets you might never experience otherwise.
  4. You will develop a keen awareness of muscles you didn’t know existed. Thanks, post-run soreness!
  5. The feeling of accomplishment and growing confidence is second to none.
