A Warning

A Warning Before you start running, please check with your doctor to make sure your heart is healthy enough. Okay, now that's out of the way, let's lace up our trainers and get going!


The Mental Prep

The Mental Prep So once you've made the decision to run, you've made a mental commitment, and that can actually help you enjoy running on a level above the physical pain. Because it won't be easy - nothing worth having ever is - but with your mind set, you can do it!


Running is an excellent way for girls to lose weight and get in shape. It can be a difficult journey, but it is one that is well worth it. The mental preparation that comes with running is one of the most important steps in the process. It is important to remember that running is not going to be easy, but it is possible. With the right mindset, you can reach your goals and get the results you want.

It is important to set realistic goals for yourself. Don’t set a goal that is too difficult or too easy. Make sure that it is something that you can realistically achieve. Once you have set your goal, it is important to stay motivated and keep pushing yourself. Make sure to track your progress and reward yourself when you reach milestones.

Before you start running, it is important to make sure that you have the right gear. Investing in quality running shoes, shorts, and a t-shirt can make a big difference in your performance. It is also important to make sure that you are properly hydrated before, during, and after your run.


Pick a Point

Pick a Point If you're struggling with the last little bit of your run, here's a yoga trick you can try: focus on a point several feet in the distance, and get there. Then choose another point to focus on, and get there. That distance point you're gazing at is a drishti, and I know it sounds silly, but it helps!



Hydrate Nothing will ever taste as good as cool water when you're done with a tough run. Carry that forward and use it to add more water to your diet. Add a little lemon or lime or orange if you'd like, for extra flavor, but drinking more water can help with your overall health goals, as well as keeping you hydrated for your runs.


The Streak

The Streak I know it's hard to believe, but once you've run for ten days in a row, you'll be reluctant to give up that streak - you'll want to see how long you can go without skipping a day!

Famous Quotes

Men in general judge more from appearances than from reality. All men have eyes, but few have the gift of penetration.

Niccolò Machiavelli


Sleep Studies have shown that people who sleep well tend to be better at getting to, and maintaining, a healthy body weight. And guess what? Running during the day will help you sleep better!


The Fuel

The Fuel Once you're running, you'll look at everything you eat in a new way: as fuel. You truly will, quite automatically, scrutinize everything you consider eating, whether it's good fuel or not. And you'll naturally avoid the not (anything greasy and heavy, for example) because your body will be telling you what it wants, and why.



Accountability If you can find a group of friends to run with, or even if you just start seeing the same people out on your run, you'll have a sense of accountability, helping you keep running, even on the days you just don't want to go.


The Bibs and Bling

The Bibs and Bling Can I just tell you how amazing it feels to pinon a bib for a race, then at the end, to sometimes even win or earn a medal? I'm in it for the bling, and after a while, you will too.


Competing with Yourself

Competing with Yourself Truly, nothing will spur you to keep running, and even pushing to be faster, than trying to reach a new PR (personal record). It feels so good to compete with yourself, and only yourself, unless...


You Compete with Others

You Compete with Others When I'm running, in a race or not, I'm racing everyone I come across, whether they know it or not. I've even raced freighters I see when I'm running by the water! It's fun!

So these are a few of the tricks that will help you stick with running, to help you lose weight (or just be healthier). What other tips can you share?
