Here are 8 basic tips that I’m am sure many seasoned runners are already aware of. It won’t hurt to keep them as simple reminders.

1. Set a goal. This will keep you motivated. A goal that will take 3-6 months to complete will keep you on the road. It could be a goal to a finish a certain distance, meet a certain weight or run a certain time. Make sure your goals are reasonable and attainable.

2. Take it slow. New year celebration makes everything more exciting but don’t run to fast to soon. Build a plan and start from your baseline. When training or racing, it is ok to walk or slow down.

3. Check your shoes. Your shoes are your most important investment for running. Make sure they are still in good condition. It might be time to buy a new one. Have your foot type checked also to be sure you are wearing the best shoe for your feet.
