Here is a list of 20”secrets” about running. I say secrets not necessarily because this is classified information that is only available one you’ve joined the super top secret Cool Kids Running Club, but more so because these are the little things you tend to learn along the way. Things that, if you’re just starting out you might never think to ask about, but that are extremely helpful if you’re lucky enough to be clued in beforehand.
These are all of the things that I wish a little running fairy had come and shared with me before the sport became a daily activity for me. You know, back when I was a running “newbie.” Just an average jane with a pair of old (and probably extremely inadequate for running) pair of gym shoes and the desire to reclaim my fitness. If you’re a seasoned runner, you probably already know most or all of these tips. (Of course, it never hurts to revisit old knowledge.) But if you’re new here and you want to learn how to run the right way, all of the secrets I’m about to share can help get you started running right!
