Over the last several months, I've heard a recurring theme from friends in the running community that they've lost their love of running and are trying to reclaim it. It seems that the pressures of continuous training cycles, Strava statistics, and injury (or threats thereof!) have taken a toll on many of us.

You may be running on some of the same terrain, but you're in for an altogether different experience. Hang on to your energy gels, ladies and gents.
