This week on Radio Exiles, we spoke with Allison Rice, a public health and exercise professional and the creator of the fitness website Happy Tales Blog, who challenged our listeners to begin their own distance running regimen over the next seven days, regardless of starting level.
Allison laid out some simple tips for runner of all levels and abilities, in order to begin a safe and effective running regimen. From hydration, to stretching, to that very first run, to injury avoidance, Allison shared her thoughts on effectively designing and maintaining a program with an end goal (a race or event!) in mind.
Allison also shared with us her most recent marathon experience (the Flying Pig Marathon in Cincinnati back in May), and gave her tips on what a runner might expect at various new running events and marathons.
Whether an amateur runner, or a seasoned professional in need of a “kick-start,” all can benefit from Allison’s tips to get out there and get running!
