DON'T BE AFRAID TO START RUNNING says Monica Olivas in an ACTIVE.com slideshow. Olivas identifies "7 common running fears" and provides humorous images and arguments to ease the minds of those who might be considering this move.
In a time crunch? Clicking though the slides takes a few minutes at most.
Although FDR's famous quote about fear was made in his first presidential inaugural address in 1933, responding to the mood of the nation in dark times of the Depression, it can be applied to other situations in which fear can be immobilizing. Being afraid to start running is far down on the list of serious fears but it potentially can keep us from achieving significant fitness and health goals.
For a little fun and encouragement, check out this slideshow. There will be a future Earned Runs blog post about initiating next year's resolutions sooner rather than later..

I've been a dietitian, practiced and taught clinical pathology, and been involved with research that utilized pathology. I am fascinated with understanding the origins of disease as well as health.
