“You make it look easy.”

It feels good when people say this to me when I’m running.

It’s a compliment.

I always respond by saying something along the lines of “Thank you. I work really hard at it.”

I’ve been consistently running for a long time.

I take it seriously.

People who make what they do look easy have worked hard at it.

People who make what they do look effortless have put in a lot of effort.

Work hard to make it look easy.

Put in effort to make it look effortless.
