Somewhere in the future, or not, your spring runner locator radar says…
- Bziiiip! bziiiip! bziiip!! Path number 7 is collapsed by 368 new spring “runners” , from station corner to Mary Lou’s bakery, want to look for an alternative route?
Although it sounds a bit exaggerated it could perfectly be a situation in a futuristic, fantastic and comical film.
A couple of weeks ago, when I was comfortable on the sofa after my almost daily workout I was having a chat and the other person told me that spring was there where she lives and it was just the right time when that people who was hidden like a bear in their “winter cove” started to think in summer, in trying to lose those “couple” of kilograms and see themselves very good-looking for summer time.
Of course there are some exceptions, but from each 100 people who try it, only 2 keeps practising and running for weeks, months or even years. However I can’t take out of my mind the typical picture of the occasional runner who suddenly goes to Decathlon to get full and cool equipment, some running and colourful shoes, and rest of clothes of the most known brands. Just arriving their home they start to call their fellows to join for a run, but not everybody is ready for that “challenge” in this right moment, so finally they decide to do it by their own, (in the hidden side of their mind) they think it will better that way because there won’t be any witness.
They usually tries one, two, three days a couple of weeks
40% stop the second day, running is TIRING you have to move legs and .. you SWEAR! :-((
20% start to feel pain in their knees and legs and they give up. (They never thought body is more than face, hair tits and ass,) They have legs and they hurt!!
15% prefer sitting their lazy ass having a beer when better weather is coming than keep running.
10% realize that is not that cool at all
13% start to feel depressed when they see they are not loosing weight (in only 3 running days) and the worst … they are even more hungry!!
So when winter arrives, cold, wind and rain, there are only 2 left , these 2 are really proud of themselves, they feel great, they can run longer and what’s more they ENJOY! they never thought that amount of suffering would be so satisfying, and then, they stop using their, “spring runner locator radar” there’s not any need, paths are empty for next 10 months.
By the way, congratulations for being the other one of those 2 last ones, we have to be proud, we get it, and now we have ended to read this post with a smile, and we think we are lucky we RUN!
Ps. Just take this post as a comical situation, I never laugh of those ones who try to get a better and healthy life, they tried at least.
