Health Tip: 10 Commandments for the Runner...

10 Commandments for the Runner

  1. Thou shall not compare thyself to other runners.  A mile is a mile.
  2. Thou shall never say "I am not a runner." If you run, you are a runner.
  3. Thou shall not skimp on sleep.
  4. Remember the "rest day" and keep it holy.
  5. Honor thy muscles and thy "aches and pains" and do not push through an injury.  Runners are not invincible.
  6. Thou shall not forget to hydrate.
  7. Thou shall not commit the sin of wearing cotton; especially on race day.
  8. Thou shall not ignore thy shoes.  Get properly fitted and check for wear often.
  9. Thou shall not get stuck in a "rut," but will vary the running by switching up elevation, distance and pace.
  10. Thou shall not covet thy neighbor's medals.
