The following is a beginning of a collection of running theories and tips, updated regularly as I learn about new things. Items I find useful in my everyday life, and in this transition into becoming a runner. These will be compiled into a single page or you can follow the category posts. I don’t pretend to know ANYTHING, but I will take advice I find useful and logical and apply it to my life. Feel free to pass on links, articles, emails and such that you think others will benefit from.
