Are you a new runner or looking to get back into the sport after a long break? This episode is for you! We tackle all the questions to help you get started, run comfortably, and develop an amazing lifelong habit.

Mark Kennedy is an RRCA Certified Running Coach and the founder of the None to Run community, which also has its own podcast and app. What started as a blog has become an impressive community of new runners all sharing in their ongoing successes. Mark and I talk a bit about the community, but focus on listener generated questions that include:

  • How do I establish a consistent running habit?
  • How can I get back into running if I’ve spent years away from it?
  • Are trails a suitable place for a new runner?
  • What’s the best way to implement strength training with my running?
  • I’ve fallen in love with running! How soon can I think about running my first marathon?
  • Am I going to harm my knees?

If you’ve been hoping for an episode that gets back to the basics, this is for you. Our conversation will help get you on your way to healthy, happy running!

Thank you Previnex!

We’re supported by our newest partner, Previnex. After resisting most supplements for the better part of my life, I’m cautiously changing my tune. I’m less than a year from being a Masters runner and in my personal life, I’m optimizing for longevity. I want to be my healthiest self for as long as possible and I’m excited to partner with Previnex to make that happen.

Previnex uses the most bioavailable, clinically tested ingredients, the optimal form and dose of each ingredient, pharmaceutical grade manufacturing, testing of raw ingredients and finished products. For every purchase you make, they also donate vitamins to kids in need.

I’ve been taking their Immune Support and multivitamin over the last month and  I feel great. I have more energy and clarity, not to mention peace of mind that I’m giving my body what it needs.  I believe Previnex works and I hope you experience the same benefits as I do.
