I feel self-conscious when I run, what should I do?

It’s very common to feel a little self-conscious when out running, particularly if you’re new to the sport. However, you shouldn’t be concerned about what others may think. The vast majority of other runners will respect you for joining the running fraternity.

They, more than anyone else can relate to the struggles that you may face! As for other non-runners, try not to worry about them. Simply enjoy the great benefits that you are experiencing from running that they are missing out on.
