  1. The New Balance Fresh Foam Zantes are terrible. By far the worst running shoes I've owned.

  2. Keep on with these videos!<33

  3. I have been running for years and I still don't get up at sunrise for a run! I am more noonish to 3pm

  4. like everybody had a beach or beautiful landscape in front of their house

  5. I love running but it's a shame i don't live by the beach?

  6. I love this! I challenged myself a few years ago to start running at the gym. I always told myself "I'm not a runner," but the truth was I just had to stick with it. Now, I feel my best when I've gone for a nice run. My next goal: running in my neighborhood instead of in the gym. Running outside in the elements is very different then running inside a gym. I have a small dog that has gone running with me a few times, but I do worry about running too long when he only has little legs 🙂 THANK-YOU for this inspiration that anyone can be a runner! It doesn't matter your speed, just that you get out and do it! CHEERS!

  7. see, in Canada, this is really hard to do lol

  8. Definitely needed this ! I am trying to fall in love with running ☺

  9. I was at my heaviest of 75kg. I used to hate running so much. Then I told myself I need to start losing weight. I forced myself to get out frm bed early morning to go for a run. Just 4 rounds around the stadium track. I increase the distance to 5km shortly after months. I joined marathons.. took part in my first 10km. As months passed, I managed to do more than that.running more than 12km.. I'm glad I decided to pick up running to lose weight.after a year of running I finally lost 13kg.

  10. a useful advertisement. Thanks for the tips! gonna try it out this weekend 🙂

  11. I wish I was that girl who just loves to run….. But I'm that girl who hates it lol

  14. Hey guys, i don't have an area to running outside how can i fall in love with running on treadmill ???

  15. My expectations how I look like when I'm running: This video
    How I actually look: A girl with ugly sport wear, out of breath, stitch in the sides, without a dog, jogging in hicksville

  16. I wanted to go running for weeks, but I was too lazy getting started with it.
    This video motivates me very much!
    One question : is it healthy for your feet and ankles to run bare feet?
