And compared to past campaign seasons, religion is taking a backseat in this year’s . presidential election. Donald Trump is not outwardly religious ( and his attraction of evangelical voters has raised questions about the longevity and the motives of the religious right ). Hillary Clinton has said “ advertising about faith doesn’t come naturally to me .” And Bernie Sanders is “not actively involved” in a religion. Their reticence about religion reflects the second largest religious group in the country they hope to run. Aside from Ted Cruz, the leading candidates just aren’t up for talking about religion. The number of Americans who seek divine intervention in the voting booth seems to be shrinking.
Running further than you ever have before can be daunting, but you can do it! Mentally preparing yourself for your longest run of the week will make it easier. Some ways to make a long run seem less daunting are to break it down to 1 mile at a time, or to treat it as 2 x a distance you can run easily, or 1x a distance you can do with a little bit more added on – a 10k with a slow 3k added on already sounds less scary than running 13k.
We hope this helps you increase your running stamina and help you run further than before! Let us know what running topics you’d like us to cover in future posts by leaving a comment below.
