Guest Opinion: What if running wasn't so hard?

As a cross country coach for the past six years, I have had the opportunity to hear a lot of people’s running stories and aspirations. One of the most common stories I've heard is about the person who loved running all throughout his or her childhood and early adulthood, but then a dreaded injury prevented any hopes of running very much again in the future. The other story I've heard is about the person who hasn’t ever gotten into running – and wants to – but is afraid that it will be too painful or too much work to adopt as a new lifestyle habit.

Food for Thought

I saw a program explaining the over-abundance of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere: what causes it, what it does to the environment, and what can – or might – be done about it. If you passed your junior high science classes you should remember that as we breathe in air and absorb the oxygen from it, we exhale carbon dioxide. We also produce carbon dioxide when we use fossil fuels to produce electricity, run our vehicles and operate our factories. Plants, very cooperatively, absorb carbon dioxide from the air and respire oxygen.
