Running Wisdom....
I remember my very first day, I was so nervous and I was scared of making a fool of myself. The clinic instructor was very welcoming and made us all believe we could meet our goals. At that point my only goal was to run for 1 minute without coughing up a lung. At the end of that very first clinic session I felt great. I had always said I hated running and to my surprise I actually enjoyed myself. I was really getting into the clinic experience when I had a personal crisis, very unexpectedly my father passed away. It would have been a perfect excuse to put running on hold or stop all together, but instead I used the running to help me cope. I can honestly say that running helped me get through a very difficult time in my life. (getfit)
