I wanted to share tips for beginner runners for you guys since I have been getting a lot of requests to share my story and how to get started running! So here it is!
Years ago, my mom battled breast and ovarian cancer (she fought for 8 years) so I was heightened to any organizations that focused on breast Cancer awareness. A friend of mine came to me and told me about the Danskin Triathlon, benefiting Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
I wasn’t an athlete or a runner, and definitely needed to learn to swim, but I really wanted to do it- for my mom.
The race consisted of a half mile swim, 12 mile bike, 3 mile run. When I finished and saw the rankings for each leg, I realized I ranked quite a bit higher in the running portion. That was the easiest part of the race for me, and I kind of liked it. So, I decided to keep running and sign up for a 5k.
After I did the 5k, signed up for a 10k, and eventually a half marathon. I’ve since kept running and I love it! I always feel better after a run and I never regret it!
There’s much more but this is just a short list for beginners. I’ll be back with more as I field your questions! Let me know what they are!
