Did you start running to lose weight?
I know I did...and then...I fell madly, deeply in love with running and I realized there's WAY more to OUR SPORT than "calories burned."
As a sports dietitian, I'm constantly trying to help you shift your focus from thinking of running as a means to shrink your body...to understanding that running is so much more than "calories burned."
Running is good for you no matter how much you weigh - you cannot judge your health based on body size, you cannot judge fitness based on body size and you deserve to CELEBRATE your body.
