Please. I'm begging you. Click on the picture for a link to my absolute favorite columns in Runner's World called "The Newbie Chronicles". If you really love me you'll click on the picture. Woops. Been around 5 year-olds too much today.
In one article he says "The only thing running hasn't changed is running itself. I would have guessed that by now it would be easier for me to do. It isn't. People say the run gets easier, but people say aliens abduct you in the desert, too. I've stopped looking for signs of an easier run in exchange for signs of an easier life."
I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels that way.
