Phobias are Living Nightmares

Your Running Game is Failing

Tell a runner they need to stop running and you will instantly see a look of sheer panic stricken terror flood their faces. Between one breath and the next they’ve thrown up in their mouth a little, had their heart explode, lungs collapse, and may have mentally murdered your firstborn. It’s that big.
