Every few years or so, I try to start running.
I’m so sore I could just curl up in a ball and never move again. Muscles that I never used have been thoroughly used.
I remember this morning that when you’re building muscles and getting fit, the sore feeling means one is getting stronger. It’s really the only way to grow.
Oh, glorious pain! This is how to move into strength and then, eventually, into the freedom to run.
