Just like this pin depicts, keeping a mental checklist to make sure you are following proper running technique is important. You can reduce your injury risk as well as get more out of your run.

There are so many different aspects of running to keep in mind and if you do have a passion to run, take the time to maybe make your own board and pin your favorite habits, workout snacks, your greatest motivations, your ultimate playlists, etc. It’s certainly not easy to get started, but find your outlet to share your progress by making your own Pinterest guide.
