Why run? Your life can be changed by running. It has undoubtedly altered my. It has given me new friends, led me to incredible locations, and given me a completely different perspective on the streets I walk on every day.
Running can sometimes be a heart-pounding struggle or pure, song-bursting bliss. When you cross the finish line and realise you beat your best time, pushing yourself during a race can be cruel masochism, but it's worth every second. Or you may just be effortlessly floating along, marvelling at how adaptable and superior the human body is as you watch the earth beneath you sink.
Here are a few more tips
1) Begin with a little mileage. It's okay if the distance you can run is only a half mile, quarter mile, or a few hundred feet. You may quickly increase your distance to a 5K or more by gradually adding more distance. You run the danger of getting hurt or simply becoming exhausted if you decide to increase your mileage all at once.
2) Get fitted for a comfortable pair of running shoes. Locate a nearby running store and ask the staff for assistance in selecting the ideal pair of sneakers for you. It's great if they put you on a treadmill so they can watch how you run.
3) Get plenty of water. Dehydration is a risk when running, especially in hot conditions. Make sure to drink enough of water prior to, during, and after your run to prevent dehydration.
