I Thought I Was a Terrible Runner. This Free App Changed My Mind.


SINCE a single-season stint as the slowest runner on my middle-school cross-country team, I have quit running many times. My return to the sport early in the pandemic seemed destined to be the latest. The first run was

exhausting, but gratifying. The next, just exhausting. I figured I was the problem. My body was just not built for running.

I happened to be trying a new-to-me app called the Nike Run Club (NRC). As with similar tools I’d tested, like MapMyRun and Strava, starting a workout requires little beyond opening the app. NRC, however, has a tab the other free apps had lacked: “guided runs.”
