我非常討厭跑步,直到50歲我改變了這一點

On Feb. 1, 2018, I put on a pair of sneakers and went for a run for the first time in more than 30 years.
2018年2月1日,我穿上運動鞋開始跑步,這是我30多年來的第一次跑步經歷。

To say I was never a runner is a mild way to sum up a life of active antipathy to the activity. Exercise was never my thing - undertaken periodically, at best, in an effort to force my body to become a smaller size.
我從來不跑步是我這一生反感活動的溫和說辭。我從來都不是鍛煉愛好者--充其量不過是定期鍛煉,以使身材更為苗條。

Yet here I was in my 50s, feeling heavy and out of shape, in a pair of sneakers I bought when I took tennis lessons in 1999 and an oversized neon pink sweatshirt, gasping my way again along the pavement.
但現在我50多歲了,感覺自己很笨重、身材走樣,所以穿上了1999年上網球課時買的那雙運動鞋,套上寬大的霓虹粉運動衫,再次氣喘吁吁地在人行道上跑了起來。

I blame technology. It was my computer that got me to run again - and not just because sitting at it for years without exercising had gotten me into bad shape. On social media, I vicariously followed other people's fitness successes: an overweight mom who became a marathon runner, a friend who walked and ran off half her body weight, a music critic colleague who tweeted her day's playlist after each run.
我將其歸咎于技術。電腦讓我再次跑了起來--而不僅是因為多年來久坐不動使我身材走樣。在社交媒體上,我間接關注了他人的健身成功歷程:一位成為馬拉松運動員的超重母親,一位走著跑著減掉了一半體重的朋友,一位每次跑完步就會分享音樂單的音樂評論家同事。

Online, I kept seeing articles about the benefits of exercise; if it were an over-the-counter drug, one doctor said, everyone would buy it. And then there was an app: Couch25K (that's "couch to 5K"), a program that led you from Square 1 to running five kilometers in just eight wee. In my supposedly busy life, joining a gym had always seemed like an insurmountable hurdle. But I can always download an app.
在網上,我總是看到有關運動好處的文章;一位醫生說,如果這是非處方藥,每個人都會去買著吃的。再之后,Couch25K應用出現(即"5公里跑"),幫助初學者在8周的時間內從零起點跑完5公里。在我本該忙碌的生活中,去健身房健身似乎是一個無法逾越的障礙,但下載應用的時間還是有的。

Then I met up with one of my oldest friends for breakfast. "I've started running," she said, and maybe that, coming from a lifelong habit of sisterly competition, is what pushed me over the edge and got me actually to start a couple of weeks later.
后來,早餐時我遇到了一位老朋友。"我開始跑步了,"她說道,也許是因為長久以來姐妹競爭的習慣,我也受到了影響,并于幾周后開始跑了起來。

And the beauty of running is that it's solitary - nobody has to know how long you've been doing it. Winded? For all that passerby knows, you've already run five miles. Or so you tell yourself.
跑步的美妙之處在于它是孤獨的--沒人知道你跑了多久。氣喘吁吁?所有的路人都知道,你已經跑了5公里啦;蛘,你就是這么心理暗示自己的。
