Like most runners, I have learned a lot over my years and years of pounding the asphalt and the trails. These tough lessons make us better runners! But if I could travel back in time and talk to my newbie running self, this is what I would tell her…
More miles does not always mean better running.
Don't over train.
START STRENGTH TRAINING!
Buy a hydration pack right now. Don't wait, you will love it!
Don’t drive all the way to Lancaster for Active Release Technique. OIivetti Chiropractic on the Carlisle Pike is awesome!
Do not sign up for the following races because you won’t be able to run them due to injury and you will not get your money back: Virginia Beach Marathon, Hyner View Challenge, Lehigh Valley Half Marathon.
What do you wish you could tell your newbie running self?
