What is Running?

"I'm not a runner at all. I don't know how you do it."

Quite a few people have told me this when I tell them what I like to do. Running is something any person can do. It's quite simple, too. You put one foot ahead or in front of the other, then swing your arms, one at a time. Start slow, then gradually go faster. I've done it quite a few times for a long period of time for long distances, that's why others think of me running quite effortlessly. Well, that's both true and false. Running is really easy compared to other sports because it only involves one motion over and over again. However, on the other hand, it can also be rather challenging. But there's a caveat. It is only as challenging as the goal you set for yourself. Or to put it in another way, it is only as difficult as the way you said it to be.

In my opinion, anybody can be a runner. Just do it!
