You don’t need anything but running shoes to start running. But having some basic gear can make a big difference and keep you going.
I found an easy and simple half-marathon training plan with no gimmicks that worked to get me a sub-2hr PR in my first 13.1 race!
Just took the New Balance 1080v7 shoes out for a spin, and I like them so far. Way easier on my knees and ankle than the Altra Paradigm or Mizuno Wave Rider.
Buying for the the geeks is hard, so you need this handy-dandy nerdy gift guide. But you probably aren’t just surrounded by geeks, but fitness fanatics, too
I get asked how to start running a lot. A lot. I love this question because it’s easy to answer: use Couch-to-5K or a program like it. But there’s a problem. C25K is hard. Like really hard. Especially if you’re not a runner. Even more so if you’re not active at all, and you’re just starting out with fitness and exercise.
