If you’re thinking about starting to run in 2016, or you’ve decided to return to the sport after some time off, this episode is for you. (And really for any of us who want to find our running groove in the year ahead.) Coach Lisa Taylor and Heather Durocher talk about common mistakes new runners make and how to avoid them. They also share hard-won runner wisdom from their own running journeys (the importance of cross-training, realizing and accepting that not every run is going to feel all that good, the pitfalls of comparing ourselves to others…) This episode also features insight from MRG readers, who shared their own been-there-done-that advice on the Michigan Runner Girl Facebook page. Along with coaching high school girls cross country for 20+ years, Coach Lisa has helped more than 400 runners over the past 13 years get started running through a northern Michigan running program — her advice on this episode is sure to motivate you to discover your best running self in 2016, whether you’re just getting back into it or you’re lacing up running shoes for the very first time.
