To help with the motivation we have plenty of running races taking place this year that you can sign up to. This way you’ll have a tangible goal to work towards, and you’ll be part of the great Team Children with Cancer UK running family. So what are you waiting for? Here are a couple of tips to get started on your running journey.
Before you make it out the door, you’ll want to make sure you have the right kit. Get yourself some new running gear to get you excited and prepared for your runs – whether it’s your trainers or clothing, think lightweight, breathable and supportive. With winter upon us, you’ll want to stay warm and dry. A good wicking base layer will help, and there is nothing wrong with tying your waterproof jacket around your waist once you get hotter.
You can make yourself visible with some high-vis items. Once you’re looking the part, make yourself a running playlist to get you pumped and help those miles fly by. Don’t forget to encourage your friends and family to get involved! Having some fellow runners will help you stay motivated, stick to planned run days and inspire some friendly competition. You can even set up an informal Strava competition with your friends and family – who can run the longest in a week?
