You get out of bed although it’s barely dawn...


...grab your water, some headphones, and put your gear on.


You meet with your mates at the usual place...

...nothing’s better than friends when you’re training to race.


You jump to warm up, and you stretch out each calf...

...then you head out the door toward your favorite path.

It never starts easy, but you persevere...

...when you find the right rhythm, your mind starts to clear.

You talk with your friends as you check out the view...

You don’t really mind getting beet red and sweaty...

...when long runs mean ice cream, cupcakes, and spaghetti.

No matter how busy, you find time to run...

...and going with friends only adds to the fun.

Uncomfortable chafing, the cramps in your thighs...

...just a small price to pay to achieve runner’s highs.

Today is the day you will beat your PR...


...which earns you and your pals extra drinks at the bar.

You know that as soon as your run finally ends...

...when your breathing gets slow, and your heart rate descends...

...that no matter what happens the rest of the day...

BuzzFeed Creative took a damn run — it’ll all be OK.



Get your mates together and keep running the good run, and find the perfect fit with The Athlete's Foot.
