There are not many perks to getting older when it comes to running. However, you do gain quite a bit of experience from making a ton of mistakes. I started running way back in the year 2000 and, in the time since, I’ve learned a ton!


I’m excited to be passing on some of that knowledge (with none of the agony of the mistakes!) at Nellie’s place today! As you may know, this Brooklyn Active Mama has recently begun her love affair with running and I couldn’t be happier. I’ve loved Nellie from the day I started reading BAM, and I’ve had the absolute pleasure of hanging with her twice this past year.

I get giddy when people I know and love take up running, and it’s been no different with Nellie. She just recently completed her first 10 miler (woot woot!) for her half-marathon training! But,Β more important then the mileage, is what she has discovered about herself though running. I love it when that happens.

So, before this turns into a blog post of it’s own, please join me at Brooklyn Active Mama for my top 5 things all new runners should know!
