So I want to start running, my sister and I were going to train together and do a color run this summer. But then she finally got to get pregnant! But now I don’t have a running buddy. I am thinking about asking my brother, not sure yet. But the reason I am writing this is because I want to know if anyone has any tips on running. I am new to the whole thing but so far I am enjoying it very much!

I’m really glad you enjoy running! It’s a rare quality; I don’t usually enjoy running that much myself, but I have to do it to stay in shape for the sports I play. I like running on a treadmill and watching TV to keep me distracted.

So, here goes on some tips (hope they help!)

-Always keep water/Propel/Gatorade with you, it will help your stamina
– running with music can really help and the right playlists can sometimes get you farther than not having music/having the wrong playlists.
-Start small and then build up once your body adjusts (start running half a mile, then once you’re comfortable do one mile, then 1.5 miles, then 2, etc.)
-Run routinely, every day or every other day or even once a week- just keep it consistent
-sometimes, using your emotions or current situations can help give you bursts of energy- channeling your anger, disappointments, or even excitement can help motivate you as you run.

🙂 best of luck! I hope you find someone you can run with!

All I can really say is long strides. This will seem like more work, but my cross country coaches tell me it is actually easier especially when it comes to hills. Also, keep you arms down lower. You don’t want any dinosaur arms! Oh and when running down hills make sure to use them to gain speed. This is especially helpful if you’re a competitive runner. Good luck! Running won’t always be fun, but it is so rewarding!
