Return to Running

“In early March, the Sunday before lockdown, I ran 8 miles around my suburban Philadelphia town. It was my longest run ever – I was training for my first half, scheduled in May – and it felt great. That Friday COVID hit and my anxiety got the best of me. I completely stopped running or working out at all. Just yesterday, I got back out there for the first time in nearly a year. Just 2 miles was rough, but knowing that I once completed 8 and that I have that in me helped me finish, and I look forward to working my way back to that again.” —Gina M.
