how to start running when you are overweightOverweight running

Overweight running is all about overcoming anything that will take you away from being consistent.

It is one thing to be an elite runner but it is a whole different ballgame to be overweight and struggling to get back into shape.

You should not be ashamed by this.

People jump to conclusions and never consider the feelings of those striving to do something that is already hard for lighter runners.

Overweight Runners are Not Lazy

I will never believe this.

I have been at this for over 28 years and ran professionally for 8 of them.

So, I find it extremely motivating to see someone out trying to lose excess weight. It is far more impressive to me than someone out running repeats miles at 4.45 a rep.

Everyone can become great

That's easy for you to say Nate you aren't like me.

Possibly true, but what I am is an overcomer just like you. I have dealt with failure, wanting to give up and understand some of the heartache you might have encountered.

I may be lighter but I have an open ear and know how to listen and am no better than you. You are just as determined as me and I don't care what your weight currently is. You have the potential to get to your dream weight and do away with overweight running once and for all.

Let me tell you, if you are overweight and think it will never come off.
