As I mentioned yesterday, I am running a 10k. I found out a few of my co-workers or their spouses are also running in it. As we were discussing, one of our other co-workers asks why we are running the kiddy race. We should be doing the full or at least half marathon as anyone can run a 10k.
There is nothing to be ashamed about running a 10k or even a 5k. Same goes with how fast you run. Maybe anyone can run a 10k, but not anyone can run a 10k way and stay injured free or is able to walk the next day or even go running the next day. It takes training to do it safe and correctly.
Non Runners just don’t get it.
