Stop Running for Weight Loss

If you love running for the sake of running, great. That’s awesome, and you’ll probably be a healthier and happier human for it. But if you’re picking up running because your friend lost 30 pounds as soon as he started jogging in the mornings and you’re trying to lose the same, please stop.
