Run, Run, Run!

With beautiful weather here, many people are outside running.  Some are seasoned runners who kept up indoors on treadmills and running tracks.  Others are novices wanting to lose weight or keep it off and have discovered that running is a great way to do that.  Whether you are seasoned or a novice, there are some things that prevent injuries to keep in mind as you run:
1.  Get good shoes designed for running that fit your feet well since your feet, knees, hips   and back are all affected by them. Replace them every 300-350 miles.
2.  Wear clothing that is comfortable and keeps moisture away from your body.
3. Land mid-foot instead of on the ball of the foot or the heel to prevent shin splints and knee pain.
4.  Keep good posture to avoid straining the neck and shoulders.
5. Work on improving leg turnover instead of elongating your strides.  More light quick steps per minute should be your goal.
6.  Hydrate!  Sip water instead of gulping, After 60 minutes, replace the water you've been sweating out with Gatorade or something similar to replace electrolytes lost.
7. Always warm-up before with active, moving stretches.  Static stretching after cooling down from your run will help keep muscles from tightening up and causing pain later.
Healthy activity, exercise8. Set some goals for yourself.  From 1 mile fun runs to 5ks and more, these events are a great way to motivate yourself and many of them have causes the entry fees help support. Go to to look for events in your area or for more helps with improving your run.

Running is great cardio and fantastic as a stress release.  Spending time with the Lord during your run increases it's value!

Additionally they assume it is okay to abuse what they deem "fat people" or men and women they feel are "ugly". They feel it is alright to treat "telemarketers" with disrespect when these are just men and women accomplishing a occupation (I'm not talking about impolite or abusive telemarketers either!). I believe the golden rule is reality that nonetheless stands, considering that reality will generally stand.

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

I am not sure what video you are referring to. I only have 1 video on my site for the 3/10/3 Challenge. The blog posts are not in tremendous depth simply because of the readership that normally comes to my site. Many of them are novice exercisers or contemplating exercise. I give them what they are looking for overall. Although I don't speak or read French, it looks like you are from a shoe company, Nike I assume. It would make sense that you would want more depth. There are many websites dedicated to avid runners that would provide deeper detail such as Many blessings to you!
