I was introduced to running by a friend who was a high school sports teacher. I was also able to benefit from the advice of another friend who is a qualified track and field coach. But it must be recognized that running – I mean running out of stadium – does not require learning special gestures, just putting one foot in front of the other and doing it again! This is certainly not possible with tennis, fencing, yoga, and all sports obviously requiring a partner/an opponent. When you run, you are alone with yourself, free to choose your speed, your course, your time. There is no need for permanent advices and advisers!
