The BIG Take-Aways:

If you have never run before, start off by walking. Then, alternate between walking and running. Using a treadmill, Bruce would run for 1 minute and walk for 2 minutes, etc. He did this in order to build up his stamina. He also started at a slower pace and then increase over time. In time, you will be able to feel ready to step up to the next level.

It was a while before I ran competitive races, but the standard was competing with myself and not with all the people around us.

Run at least 5 times a week, once you feel you have acclimated to doing it. In other words, stay consistent, even if you are simply running a 20 minute run.

Whatever you do, make sure you work up to it and that you stay consistent with it.
