- Be born. If you have read Bryony Gordon’s ‘You Got This‘ book, you will realise what an amazing miracle this actually is.
- Have a body: Luckily we have one of those given to us when we are born!
- Put your trainers on.
- Go for a run. Doesn’t matter how fast or far you go.
- Tah-Dah you have a RUNNER’S BODY!
Now, you didn’t think it was going to be that simple, did you?!
One of the things I have noticed so many times when at races; the running community comes in all different shapes and sizes, but they all complete the same race, pick up the same medal, get the same runners high and same feeling of accomplishment at the end of the run!
If you run, no matter how fast, you already have a runners body, so embrace it. Be proud of it for what it allows you to do, and don’t compare it to anyone else’s body.
