How To LOVE Running!

For me it was about getting out of my head. Music is a nessesity. It’s also my me time. The only time I have quiet moments with God and nature. Figure out your breathing, set small goals to push yourself each time just a little harder, and stay out of your head.

I run like crazy at the end just because I know I can push harder. Learning to run is like starting kindergarten. If you begin with the fundamentals, you’ll set yourself up for years of success. It all begins with practicing patience, and progressing slowly and. It’s time to modify your training frequency, progression rate, sleep, nutrition, stress, travel, lack of downtime, the elements and more.

Learning to run by monitoring your pace is like being in love with a toxic person. With every stride comes judgment that you’re not fast enough. While you’re learning to love running, you should too — give up the notion that you need to feel winded at the end of every workout, and just enjoy the feeling of running this way. 3. Take short, quick strides.

Trying to remember 10 different form tips while you run is a sure way to suck the fun out of it. Run at a pace that doesn’t leave you gasping for breath in a block or two, and if it feels slow, that’s fine! The trick is to slowly build up your endurance. 3. Make your goals attainable.

If you decide to pick up running and your goal is to finish a marathon, you’re probably going to get discouraged pretty quickly. Once you’re comfortable with how running feels, try following a plan designed to make you a faster, better runner, like this beginner’s 5K training plan. Go. The whole thing feels like a failed effort. But a few hours after my sorry performance, Molly Huddle, a Rhode Island runner and 10,000-meter American record holder, tells me even she has painful.

Run with a friend, listen to music or a podcast, or occupy your mind by focusing on your breathing and form with a mantra (like, “inhale, exhale” — it’s rhythmic and enormously distracting). Try different running techniques, such as changing speed, running up and down hills, long runs, tempo running, cross country running, etc. Give barefoot running a go and see if you enjoy the change. Make sure to find soft areas to run on. 3. One way to learn to like a tedious, fatigue-inducing exercise like running is to learn how to take your mind off of it while you’re doing it.

Start small and work your way up. Begin with 1-2 mile runs every other day, and after doing this for a month or so, increase the mileage to 3-4 miles.

Running is absolutely great for getting your heart pumping and infusing your body with endorphins, the feel-good natural chemicals.

  • I needed this so badly! Thank you for the motivation! Jessica, you’re such an inspiration to me in so many areas, I appreciate your videos more than I could ever express! Thank you!

  • I just adore you Jessica, you’re so positive and real. These are great tips not only for running, but for fitness in general! Everyone’s journey is their own, and it’s so nice to hear that reinforced. Thanks for always being such a light in the world.

  • My first mile was 15 minutes and I just now got to 11 minutes and I’ve been running for over a month. And I push myself to the point where I almost faint. LOL don’t get discouraged cause at least you’re not me xxx
    I can’t believe that’s where you started!

  • “it can be both” in regards to running and drinking wine LOL!! This is why you’re my absolute favorite YT’er! You’re so real and down to earth. Love ya <3

  • i have come back to watch this video MULTIPLE times since you’ve posted it. it really has motivated me so much, and my runs have improved so much with your tips! i’m so grateful for this video, it has changed the game for me. THANK YOU. ��

  • I’ve started running recently and I signed up for a 10k next month with my mom! I love being in the weight room, but being balanced in the cardio department is also important! Loved the video ❤️��

  • I love the couch to 5k app. It helped me get started combining walking and running back and forth and every so many days to would run a little longer and walk shorter but it helped build my stamina up. By the end of the 8 or 9 weeks you should be able to do the 3 miles.

  • Why am I watching this I hate running with a burning passion��

    Its because it hurts so freaking bad because my feet are all messed up��

  • Could you share your running playlists? I love, love this video! I love to run, but I always seem to go in phases of running for a month then fading away from it for a month and etc. With quarantine, I’ve gotten back into it and have noticed my playlist is really lacking!

  • I’ve had this video in my queue for so long and have been so excited to watch it. I started running inconsistently by last year of college. Thinking back I love the way I felt, every time I went further I felt so proud of my self Amal’s my mental health thrived. Now as a very overweight person, I struggle to find motivation. I tell myself “no one wants to see that.” Or “you’re wasting your time.” I know these aren’t true and I just need a push to get started. Consider this my very long winded thank you for making this video.

  • I’ve really started to love running lately and I’m running at least 3x a week:) I’m having a few problems with shin splints at the moment but trying to resolve these asap! Awesome video Xx

  • 1:47 hat and shades Ninja look! Yassss! That is actually the look I go for and you do feel a little more incognito its true!!!! Great video babe and looking asnradiant as ever!! xx

  • I’m coming back after two months of running. I started trying to be able to run a full mile and this morning I just completed over 2 miles and 25 minutes straight. Your tips were very helpful in getting here and as I continue to add time and distance!

  • Jessica! I just wanted to send along a thank you for making this video! I watched it a few weeks back and it inspired me to get out a do a little 5 mi run/ walk today! Would love to maybe see a follow up video on what stretches you do before/ after, playlists you like, etc.? I really appreciate your content!! ����

  • I started running 3 days ago cos i felt so motivated. Then my period came after that day. And now im here eating foods while watching running hacks videos trying to find my runaway motivation. ��

  • I love this! You have really changed my mentality on running. I am currently 18 weeks pregnant and just walking but i want to change it up to jogging. ��

  • Any tips on how to regulate breathing while running???

    That’s my major problem. I start getting sharp side pain when I’m running and I’ve been told it’s because I’m not breathing correctly but idk what exactly that means. ������

  • I thought I was weird for having trouble to breathe while listening to music ��
    Will definitely try to listen to something slower next time I go for a run, thanks for the tip ❤️

  • I really Love this video and found it very helpful. I also Love that you are just sitting and talking about something that you are passionate about. I love your setting and I just really Loved this!!! ������������������

  • Ready for a part 2 of this!!!!! Seriously changed my mindset and have been on a streak the last two weeks. Thank you for motivator

  • This video came at the PERFECT time for me,I am just starting to run to get in shape after my 4th baby, and I need all the motivation I can get, thank you for this! I had been aiming for 1 mile,and tonight I ran and walked 1.65 on the treadmill!!!

  • I am 52 yrs old, this video!! I have so many health issues, alot hereditary. I was just telling my husband if I could give ANY advice to my younger self and to younger generations now, stay active and exercise your body will absolutely love you when your older and try to eat as healthy as you can all the time. Jessica, this video! I will be sharing on Facebook page as well as to all my kids. Thank you so much. I will be walking and than running as soon as I can handle that. ❤����

  • Jessica, I hate running. Despise it. I joke that if I’m running, it’s because I’m running for my life haha. But watching this, omg, you have hard core motivated me! I have two kids (6 and 4) and am still trying to lose that damn baby weight. But more importantly, to your point, I want to be healthy and live long for my kids. You make it seem possible!

  • Love it. I am challenging myself to a 10k too. Was too late to enter the Norwich 10k but my sister ran it. Love a park run too. Thanks for inspiring again Carly x

  • OMG! I was just thinking that I should get into doing more exercise and this video has helped so much! I love how you made it so simple. Just run. I used to think that I had to run for a certain amount of time or distance to get anywhere and kept feeling terrible after running and now I feel like oh just run and don’t look at the timer or distance. Just run and now I can’t wait to begin.:) Thank you!

  • Amazing video! I have always hated running but thanks to you I will be starting!! Silly question what do you use technologically for your tracking and music? Your watch with bluetooth earbuds or do you bring your phone and have something that holds your phone on your arm?

  • I feel that you deserve to hear this. You were that spark. You were that click. I watched this video about a week ago. I have now went on multiple runs and finding myself LOVING it! I’m so proud of myself! I am the girl that said I could NEVER be a runner and here I am running! I cant do timed either but I’m starting by trying to run an hour. Had to buy new shoes because mine were NOT cutting it! Hoping the nike pegasus shoes work for me! They are half off at dicks sporting goods today (memorial day)

  • I can run for 30 mins (and more) but I don’t have a phone or an I pod (I’m writing on an I pad) so it’s very hard to track how far I actually do run in 30 mins. I’m not allowed to get a phone or an I pod so I don’t really know what I can do. At the moment I just run for pleasure, as far as I feel like running that day, but when it comes to doing my school 5K I don’t know if I’m ready because I don’t know how far I’ve been running every run. Wow I said run a lot ��
    Do you know what I can do?

  • You are such a relatable person! I just love you! I’ve been so spoiled by watching your declutters that I watched another youtuber yesterday and she decluttered like 25% and it was so hard to watch because I wanted her to be more ruthless like you! Lol! ��

  • Loved this! I have been a runner off and on for years. That seems to be the only thing that really helped me maintain a healthy weight. Inspirational video!

  • One day when I first started working out, I told my husband that I was disappointed because I didn’t get a great work out in, and he told me that anything is better than sitting on the couch eating Doritos. That changed my whole mindset. Even if I don’t feel like doing a crazy workout, I just do what I’m feeling that day because it’s better than nothing.

  • Great video on running Carly! I love running and I do agree with you on all points you make here. Just did a running gear video myself, if anyone want a closer look at different running gear and gadgets it’s on my channel:-)

  • Loved this video! So relatable! Wanted to mention, you should try the colorfulkoala leggings on amazon. They’re the closest to lululemon leggings and they don’t do that rolling down thing most leggings do. Highly recommend!!

  • I love this! I challenged myself a few years ago to start running at the gym. I always told myself “I’m not a runner,” but the truth was I just had to stick with it. Now, I feel my best when I’ve gone for a nice run. My next goal: running in my neighborhood instead of in the gym. Running outside in the elements is very different then running inside a gym. I have a small dog that has gone running with me a few times, but I do worry about running too long when he only has little legs:) THANK-YOU for this inspiration that anyone can be a runner! It doesn’t matter your speed, just that you get out and do it! CHEERS!

  • Great tips �� particularly the shoes! I used to just buy random trainers and I struggled with blisters and shin pains..I went to a running shop who tested my footfall and now I have a pair of trainers to correct my stride as I roll my feet inwards. No more pain! I use the same shoes for long walks/hikes too! Good luck as you keep going ��

  • Runner through and through. Just did my first half marathon. Jealous of your muscles though! That’s my next goal, to combine them both xx

  • Mum of toddler also trying to do my mind and body some good. Have watched this video so many times and never started. Just signed up for Nike run club and listened to a guided run and MY GOOD GOD it is amazing! Thank you ��

  • My expectations how I look like when I’m running: This video
    How I actually look: A girl with ugly sport wear, out of breath, stitch in the sides, without a dog, jogging in hicksville

  • This is so helpful and couldn’t have come at a better time, as I’m training for something quite important! Thank you so much for this:) x

  • Does anyone here have tips for running with asthma? I’ve had to carry an inhaler since I was a small child, but I am also very aware of my family health history of heart issues. Since gyms are closed right now and I can only do little things like push ups and squats at me house, I need something like running to get me out of the house. I need to lose a lot of weight too…. if anyone out there has even the smallest tip, it would be greatly appreciated

  • After watching this vid, I downloaded the running app you mentioned and went on my first run!! I ran almost a mile, felt like I was dying BUT I can’t wait to go back out tomorrow and do better than today. Thanks so much for the tips and inspiration ❤️

    Edit: are there other leggings you would recommend besides the lulu leggings? ��

  • Really good tips! I was a short distance sprinter for a running club when I was younger and over the years have tried all sorts of methods to improve my long distance game but with no success. I ended up hiring a treadmill, keeping it in the garage and using a learn to run app which basically employed the run for a minute/brisk walk for a minute process. I still struggle but now embrace a good sprint and then short jogs. You totally inspire me to keep going so thank you.x

  • YES! I always thought I wouldn’t be much of a runner but did 5K and added bit by bit mile by mile and now I am marathon training!

    Senita has awesome gear they have pockets so for longer runs I love them!! Also Nike shorts with built in underwear. And Feetures socks! Also going to a running store (when we can) to get fitted for shoes

  • great vid deffo agreen you need a goal im training for my 1st marathon at the min and i up my run by a mile a week and in my head i have my goal just to finish and be proud of what i do x good luck in your 10k ��

  • I just started running again on treadmill though. Doing it for my anxiety to see if it helps and maybe hopefully lose weight and build endurance at the same time. Last time I weighed myself I was around 230 im male how do I make my shin’s not hurt? I have to slow down sometimes because they hurt and also my thighs tingle I assume it’s normal but sometimes they go numb and red I assume from fat moving around? Im running 5 mph on 3 incline for 20-30 mins I have short legs so it’s fast for me.

  • I love running when I’m on vacation, it’s a super good way to see lots of things you’d never see otherwise. I always use google street view if I’m unsure the route is going to work (even in my own city). I can’t handle wearing a bag, but I have a few sports bras that have pockets in them that I highly recommend. Lululemon does a really good one that is like a million dollars and worth every penny….

  • Carly, this is an amazing video & super helpful as I get back into running too! Also, you look especially stunning in this video:)

  • I just started couch to 5k and I’m kinda liking it. I don’t have an athletic bone in my body, but I’m not hating it and that’s a win! I have diabetes in my family and I’m determined not to let that get me! Thanks for all the tips! ��

  • Does anyone has suggestions to prevent blisters? I LOVE running but after 7/8 kilometers I get blisters every time. I already bought a new pair of running shoes but the blisters keep coming. Would love to hear tips! Thanks!

  • Ok so I am currently pregnant and I I don’t run cause I have a terrible ankle from a previous injury but it’s a video from Jessica so I have to watch it ��

  • I just decided to get back into running. Started last week and committed to run 3 days per week. Knowing you were making this video inspired and encouraged me to commit. I can see over the years having watched you that you are benefiting in so many ways from your consistency in showing up for yourself. So thank you. And thank you for cutting in a clip with you drinking your wine! You crack me up!

  • Thank you for this. Thank you for reminding me of my “why.” I run because it makes me happy. I went for a run the next day after watching this and it did me a a world of good. Thanks you!!!

  • Just got back from my first run in idk how long. Felt good to get back out there and this video really helped motivate me. Thanks for sharing your tips and mentality with us!

  • Great tips! I agree with having good shoes for running because it can make such a huge difference and make running easier for you!

  • You will need a routine if you wanna run. Your body will need some time to adapt and the only way to do that is by creating your running routine.

  • Idk why this video finally made me start running (or trying) but it did. I’ve always wanted to but got discouraged because it was so hard. My 1st few days I literally struggled to run 30 seconds, I could walk fast for 30 mins but running ughhh…I’ve been doing the run walk method every day, started at 15 mins, now I’m at 30 mins and I know it’s not alot but I just did a half mile non stop and I’m so excited. I hope eventually I can get to 5 miles but who knows. Anyway thank you for giving me the motivation I needed to at least try.

  • Great video! I went out and ran (really, shuffled) for the first time in a while. Several of your tips popped up in my head when negative thoughts crept in, and they motivated me to keep me going. Thanks so much!

  • When my dad started walking to lose weight he started out in increments… and that was many many years ago… now he rides his bike like 15 miles… I need to get back into walking I used to walk at least 4 miles…

  • Great video. I’d just say that those bumbags/rucksack types can bounce and therefore become annoying and also chafe over longer distances. I’d recommend flipbelts for card, keys, and phones on the run; and a proper running pack with waist and chest strap if you need to carry loads ����

  • Literally 23 of those I could relate to swimming, running isn’t that unique like almost every sport has running in it, swimming is the unique one

  • Jessica!! We are the same. I started running bc I looked at my kids and realized that I wanted to live a long life with them. Also thank you for that tip about walking until you can run. I’m mind blown. So simple yet something I never thought about! ��������

  • It only took me 7 weeks to get the courage to watch this and I wish I had watched it sooner. Thank you for your fun approach to this. I’m not a runner but I have always wanted to start.

  • Was training for my first marathon last winter. Stepped on uneven sidewalk and fractured my ankle 4 weeks out.

    Failed there. haha

  • This is especially helpful because I never knew where to get started or how to find the motivation. Here in Arizona, the governor just announced that gyms are going to close, now that they just reopened. I gained so much weight during quarantine. I know I should be more careful with my diet. I shouldn’t rely on a gym to be active. I have lived in a good community for years & have only explored walking/jogging a couple times, years ago.

  • “Comparison is the thief of joy” This video was so helpful, so relatable. Maybe this is wrong but Im glad youre not sitting there like “I <3 RUNNING!!" because in my mind those were the only people who could stick to running.

  • This is awesome! Thanks for the tips, I am running my first marathon this October (7th) and I am documenting my journey! If anyone wants to follow along just check out my channel!

  • start slow….such a basic tip that I never even thought of. THANK YOU! You hit the nail in the head, I always get discouraged because I’m like okay I can barely make it a mile so i’m just going to try to make it half a mile for this week and then next week try to make it a little further and keep pacing myself. Thank you!!:)

  • Hey is running in your garage on a treadmill smarter than running outside.? I’m asking because I’m constantly on my tremill. Am I too late if the answer is outside. Please help.

  • One marathon a month is good. A marathon every Sunday is too stressful on the body and will get you injured which is not something you want as a runner.

  • Lol ig this is a somewhat of a joke but number 1 is wrong for the most part. If youre running for fun and have no intention whatsoever for getting fasster then its somewhat acceptable to eat junk. But mostly people run for a team in which case its common for any coach to tell you NOT to eat junk because it makes you slower. Even if youre not on a team but run competetively if you eat junk food youll be muchhh less likely to get a fast time.

  • I wanted to go running for weeks, but I was too lazy getting started with it.
    This video motivates me very much!
    One question: is it healthy for your feet and ankles to run bare feet?

  • again you and those beers. I have never heard of someone drinking under shower, beer mile or whatever that includes beers and running. Is it related to america only or do people all around the world associate running with beer?

  • Thank you for this video. I’ve swapped into 3 phones this year and I’m finding myself continuously buying a new armband to hold my phone. My current phone is bigger than I’m used to and it can be a pain with removing its cover and placing it in the band. Thank you for recommending a backpack. I’ll look into getting one. I’m sure now I can have a water bottle in there too and my keys! Thank you again!

  • This is the second time I have watched your vide for motivation. The first time I saw this, I went out that day and ran for the first time in years. I restarted the C25k program. When it is over I am going to follow your advice about running until you can’t and then walking until you can run. What I needed to hear today was the part about not comparing yourself. Thanks for the great tips and video!!!

  • My biggest tip is to get a great sports bra. I was running with some that were way too constricting without realizing it. Once I switched running bras, I could breathe easier and running was so much more enjoyable. I’m a D cup and a good sports bra is key. If you are curious, it is the She Fit bra.

  • I haven’t run since I did the great north run last year but this has inspired me to start again! Thanks Carly this video was fabulous! I love your channel, keep doing you.x

    Ps how hard is it to get into the London marathon! 3rd time lucky with the lottery this year hopefully!

  • I’ve come back to this comments section hoping to get feedback. I’ve tried the C25K app many times with no lengthy success of getting to 5k. Which method do people prefer, increasing distance or a training app like this? Also, weather deters me a lot. When it gets too hot or too cold. I can’t run a straight line and I get too much pain from using a treadmill, so I feel like that’s out.

  • I’m in track, I hate running on my own, so once off season comes around I fall behind. This year is gonna be different!! I’m preparing for indoor season with some running+plyos and hopefully by the time outdoor comes around I’ll be in great shape.

  • Recently decided that I want to start running but I’m not exactly a runner. Wanted to stop but this video made me want to try again. Thank you. ����

  • This is so perfect! I’ve just signed up for ‘parkrun’ which is a free running group that do 5kms every Saturday morning and I’ve never run before but decided to start! Starting small, will definitely use these tips. Thank you beautiful ��

  • I love this video! Thank you for your insight! I have hated running because I get so hard on myself when I need to take a walking break. I think I’m going to take your advice and give it another go❤

  • Hi! I’m trying to be healthier, but it’s really difficult, sometimes I don’t have the motivation for work outs, please make a video about that and I really like your what I eat in a day, I love you, please make more videos!! ������

  • I always run with my phone in my hand because I’ve tried other things and they just don’t work for me. They make me more uncomfortable than helping me (still need to try a small band that has a pocket and looks like your high waisted leggings band) But you are totally right about the weight idea. Tecno music all the way. I need to stop being afraid to film my workouts and runs just because my weight fluctuates and I feel sometimes I’m not fit because I’m fluffy and big but I know that is a stupid idea and I know I’m quite fit because the other day we went on a hike (which was my first real hike) and I was carrying things for my friends and they were much more tired than me (they also do sports/gym) Even though they are skinnier and have more muscles showing doesn’t mean I/we are less fit… And it’s not about the comments, it’s about my comments to myself =/ Love your videos and they always make me leave big a** comments sorry, but you’re the kind of person that I feel good talking too <3

  • I was at my heaviest of 75kg. I used to hate running so much. Then I told myself I need to start losing weight. I forced myself to get out frm bed early morning to go for a run. Just 4 rounds around the stadium track. I increase the distance to 5km shortly after months. I joined marathons.. took part in my first 10km. As months passed, I managed to do more than that.running more than 12km.. I’m glad I decided to pick up running to lose weight.after a year of running I finally lost 13kg.

  • Lovely Video as always:-) I enjoy Nordic Walking much more than running (also because of my weight and stuff) have a great Sunday ☀️ Saskia

  • Getting as apple watch this week and I keep starting and stopping working out and I used to like to run but I got out of the habit, trying to get back in it. My knees are awful!

  • Hey Jessica! I started running again because this video made me want to:D I’m loving it very much. Sort of never twigged that you can run until you walk and walk until you can run, so glad, as that 30 sec beeper just wasn’t working for me xx Thank you <3

  • I don’t know why, but this video is making me emotional. It’s probably because it’s my time of the month, but this is such a motivating video!

  • There’s a zombie running app/game! When you go out running there’s an entire storyline and you go and run and you can collect stuff on your travels and when you get home you can use them on the game and play with them! I love it:)

  • “kind of want to run, but kind of don’t” Oh, look. it me! ��
    “you want to be able to hear […] the ice cream van” oh look me again! ��
    Great video as usual ♥:) Still struggling with body confidence to go outside and run but the tips are great and will be useful for me one day:D ♥

  • Loved this:) I’ve been getting into running lately too, and I run the same pace/mileage as you do! One of the things I’ve found helpful is investing in a foam roller and rolling everything (including my lower back) after more intense runs, and also rolling the IT band so that your muscles are nice an relaxed afterwards. Also for speed training, I’ve found that alternating between shorter runs at a faster pace (like 1 mile at 8:30) and slightly longer runs at your comfortable pace (4 miles at 10:30 or whatever) is really helpful! But be careful with your intensity levels on those so you don’t get stress fractures.

  • This is fantastic! I’m a runner and sometimes I stop when I walk, like I failed at the run. Of course I can run walk, why can’t I walk for a few and pick it back up!!

    This was so so helpful! Thank you Jessica!!

  • Great video. I started running with the NHS couch to 5k podcast and signed up to a 5k race for life to keep me motivated. I stopped due to health issues, but really want to get started again. Any tips for knee discomfort after running?

  • i definitely have a love/hate relationship with running. i breath heavy, my face turns bright red and for some reason i feel like my inner thoughts are louder when i run. but i have found when i try to quiet my mind and focus on my breathing, when i try to give in to it and let go a bit running actually becomes fun (i don’t like to admit that). it can take you to places that you never would have discovered by car and you get a completely different feel of the city you live in (if you choose to run outdoors which is the only way to run on my opinion). anyways great vid! love your trainers (insert heart emoji here)

  • I don’t know why this made me cry. You’re the reason I finally started my own channel and now you’re the reason I am going to finally try to run. Thank you for always being a role model.

  • The run then walk is something I learned as a Girl Guide����. It’s called scouts pace. Perhaps once it was a steady gauge of an even, energetic pace that allowed for a covering of long distance. Whatever it’s history, it’s a great tool for running. We were taught 40 strides of running then 40 of walking. One can find the stride number best suited for where one’s own running capabilities and goals are. ☘️

  • I love hearing you speak so much Jess, It doesnt even matter the topic, i just love your personality ❤❤❤ (this made me want to run ����)

  • I absolutely love running! It makes me feel free and happy. I have a baby now so have a running buggy so I can take him with me xx

  • Hey Carly! I love being able to run and only started again back on April, though I’ve noticed I develop shin splints a lot particularly in my left leg and so can’t do it as often as I’d like. Any advice at all would be appreciated!
    Love all your vids ����

  • This was sooo helpful Carly, thank you for doing this! I started running properly the start of last year and I also compleated my first half marathon at RunDisney Paris last year too, it was such a great accomplishment as I couldn’t even run a mile before but it’s also great to hear some motivational tips as it can be a challenge and effort to get pass through those running barriers. ��������‍♀️

  • I’m so self conscious out there running, I ran outside yesterday in along time. So down on myself for only doing a little over a mile…needed this video

  • Is it okay to run everyday? I’ve been running for a few weeks now and idk if i should run everyday. I feel like i’m gonna injure my knees/ankles

  • I know this is a weird question but do you have a regular menstrual and do you have any tips on regulating your menstruated cycle?

  • You must be psychic! I did my first EVER run outside today.

    Thanks for making this, I love watching your videos you’re so down to earth:).

  • Found this late in the game but wow, what good tips! I’ve been trying to figure out how to get motivated to run, and this helped so much! ��

  • Do you even reply back to your subscribers? Because obviously your subscribers have a few questions for you and I noticed that you never reply back to them.

  • I’ve always wanted to get into running as in theory it seems like such a good way to stay active. You get outside, you can see new things etc. I can never seem to get into it though. But I’ll try some of these tips and see how it goes!�� Thank you��
