Since I love running I think everyone should also love running and just needs to try it. Obviously that's not the case but I do think if people would get out there and try it, get past the first 2 weeks of soreness they would enjoy it. They also need to get the sentence "I'm not a runner" out of their head because that is a self-defeating thought and they can't try something if they have already convinced themselves they "aren't".
If I could inspire someone to run it would be my mom. She is overweight with diabetes and the exercise and weight loss would do tremendous things for her. As it is though, I don't talk about my running much with her so I guess there is little opportunities for me to inspire her. I don't think she is interested in my running or approves of it, which is one of the reasons I don't talk about it. Oh, she knows that I run but she doesn't understand how much it is part of my life, how much I love running and love talking about it. She does go to Curves and goes for walks and although she may not start being a runner at 60, at least she doesn't sit on the couch of doom all the time.
