Running Motivational News (2022 Running Tips Edition) 1-11-22

Hello Runners!

Welcome to 2022! I hope your new year is off to a great start. A few episodes ago, I mentioned that I’m very happy to be out of 2021, It was a year I just assume forget for many personal reasons. But hey, I’ve started the new year vertical and that is a good thing.

I’m on my way to Maui this week to work on the Maui Marathon course which will be held on April 24th. I’ll also be heading up the Maui Oceanfront Marathon’s Cookie run this Thursday and running the 10K this Sunday. It’s been almost 2 years since I left Maui and really look forward to returning and seeing many of my friends. And yes, I sure miss Maui but must say I am very happy in Denver. Denver is a vibrant city with an incredible running community. I guess I’ve adapted.

Well, for the first news segment this year, I wanted to provide some great information to get us off to a strong start and get us going with renewed motivation and inspiration.

I found a few articles to help us amp up our running technique, build our strength and share some great pointers for those of us setting running goals for 2022. I signed up for the Las Vegas Half Marathon next month. I have a goal I’d like to reach and have some major work to do to hit it.

If you are a new runner welcome to the wonderful world of running. It could possibly change your life. The easiest way to start running is to just start. It’s that simple. Don’t overdo it. You will see improvement every time you run. And, if you haven’t already, go to a local running store and consult a specialist. They will guide you to the correct running shoes, gear, and you can ask as many running related questions as you like. You will leave the store excited and motivated. And please be sure to consult a physician before you start any new exercise programs.

I wish each of you an awesome, healthy, and successful 2022! Keep running!
