I genuinely hate running. Running is painful, and hard, and requires a lot of endurance (especially mental) that I really struggle with. I love the medals (and in the case of the Nike Women's, the Tiffany's necklace), but more significantly, I love the feeling of, "Hey, I managed to train for and finish that." Running, for me, is not only an exercise of the body but also of the mind. It has taught me to follow through with things and to continue on even when I don't want to.
