Running is one of those passions that takes no time to learn but a lifetime to master. One thing that beginning runners and elite champions have in common is that the best of each are still eager to learn.
In our experience, the best running advice doesn’t necessarily come from books or experts. It comes from the collective wisdom of everyday runners — online, in running groups, around the water cooler. That’s why we’re reaching out to all of you to share your best running tips in exchange for a shot at some fun, useful prizes.
Our goal is to come up with a solid roundup of tips from three categories, with prizes going to your favorite submissions. So from now through Sunday, April 29 please share your favorite running tips in the comments section of this post. The three categories we’re looking to fill are below –just submit your tip and tell us which category you’re entering. Submit as many tips as you like and tune in on Monday to see if you’ve been selected to move on to the voting round.
The categories are…
Running Basics (running tips, dos and donts, general advice)
Running Gear (shoes and accessories)
Motivation (inspirational quotes, running when you don’t feel like it)
What’s in it for you?
Your choice of a new SPIbelt (retail US $19.95) — the absolute best way to carry your gear while you’re running.
Your choice from our suite of Bluefin training apps ($2.99 – $9.99). We love these things, too.
We can’t wait to hear what you guys come up with. Be sure to keep an eye out as submissions come in and check back next week when voting begins. Thanks for reading and playing along!
