I just feel weird about it. I don't wanna scare any babys in stollers or interupt traffic. How do people do it without feeling awkward in such a busy city? I dont usually run. Any tips?

Your too considerate of others, and joggers are too fast to interrupt traffic, I bet any baby seeing you run will find more inspiration than fear in you Running:) you deserve a little earth; claim it! Happy running

Lol I was being lazy! Another one of my dumb excuses. I ended up running last night doing 4 mins of walking then 2 mins of running. Its not as big as ny but ny is the city that never sleeps worcester is the city of lazy massholes! But they can go ahead and judge me I wanna be healthy! Lol

Well I did the 4 then 2 like 5 times. I hear 45 mins of cardio is better but that felt like my limit

try the couch to 5k runs i do from week 1, those help a lot, i know how you feel, i used to be like that, once you stop caring what others think you just do what you want to do, 45 minutes of cardio is good, if you include what you walk in the whole day and run you probably do more than that anyway, let them judge with their fat bellies while you're running around looking sexy,they're just hating they don't have the guts to do what you do lol

Do you run with music? If I have music blasting I tend to forget that people are around me.

Find a trail or path that has less vehicle traffic. Try a large park. Or go outside the city.

I used to feel the same. Actually I still do. I just tend to go for a quiet route. You can't avoid people completely unfortunately, but having headphones in helps. I live in a pretty quiet town and everyone knows each other. I actually go out without my glasses on so I don't recognise anyone hah it helps though! Feels like I hide in plain sight :-)
