What is the one bit of advice you wish you someone shared with your when you started running/biking/swimming/etc. ?
Early on, I was way too worried about what people would think. As in worried that the real athletes of the world would scoff at me and say I had no business corrupting their sport with my mediocrity. I wish someone would have told me that NO ONE REALLY GIVES A HOOT. Other runners/athletes don't care if I'm slow, they don't care if I don't look like a runner, they don't care if my shirt and shorts don't match, they don't care if I can't swim worth a damn, etc., etc. If they DO care, they're stupid.
