Welcome! Forums Running Forum Runners who don’t like running Re: Re: Runners who don’t like running


I would be very skeptical of any runner that says they do not enjoy running.  Like so many of you have said, why would you do it?  There are a thousand other ways to stay in shape that you might find less distasteful and countless other pursuits you could use to occupy your free time.  I believe that people enjoy taking part in an activity that others might perceive as painful or difficult or which may require a fortitude that they do not possess.  So, when asked if they enjoy running, they can convey that they were able to withstand the pain endured during such a difficult task.  To most of the readers of this board, painful running is a terrible sign that they are not right physically and is to be avoided at all costs.  Runners who don't like running might be a misnomer for foolish exercisers.  Find a new hobby.
