Cheaper Than Therapy
If you had asked me last year if I could run, I probably would have answered: “No, not even downhill.” I started running because it was cheaper than therapy, and I also wanted to be more active. Friends motivated me to start doing it, so it didn’t feel that difficult. Since we didn’t see each other a lot because of school, work and family, we decided that getting together for workout dates was a great idea. It was not an easy process, but having an encouraging group of friends made it easier.
