I’ll be honest an say the thought of running sometimes freaks me out. I remember when I was in primary school and having to participate in those compulsory cross country races and weeks leading up to the big day I would get sick with nerves thinking of ways I can fake sick my way out of it, I think that’s where my initial hate for it came and maybe about a couple of months ago I decided it’s time I look this fear of mine in the face and force myself to love it, but naturally. Here in came running clubs such as Nike and to my shock when I did my first session at the Nike Running Club, I managed to do the full distance without stopping, I’ve never felt so invincible, liberated in my life, doing something I never thought I could do was such an empowering feeling and I needed more. Though I am far from doing my first marathon it’s definitely been baby steps till I get there. Whilst socialisng and meeting new people I became privy of other running clubs in Joburg and for anyone out there that’s brave enough to brace this winter cold, I have some pretty cool running club suggestions that I think you will like at no cost at all.
