wtf byu what do you even think you're doing with your life

It was a pain to run a single mile before Zombies, Run. I hated running. Even if it was part of another sport. On top of that, I am a working college student who had so much to do that it’s hard to feel any motivation for exercise.

Z,R changed it. Changed it ALL. I can happily run three miles. Normally I would do six. PER DAY. I JUST DID A RACE IN WHICH I RAN 15.5 MILES.  I feel good now when I run.

I now don’t feel any hesitation about running because I know that I can do it, and that I’ll feel good afterwards.
