It doesn't matter if I'm with the front, middle or back groups... success bubbles all around with our beginners. Tonight, they managed a 20 minute run for the first time. 20 whole minutes. From a group with whom we took those very first difficult running steps to being able to run with them for 20... and chatting too. I love hearing how running is already transforming their lives. What it's doing for their bodies. Their confidence.
It's a very special, powerful thing. I know that a lot of people don't get running or why you'd run. I wish they could even get one tiny glimpse of the transformation I see happening week by week. If you saw that, if you could be part of that, if you could feel the positivity... you might just start to get it too.
I am a lucky old me!
