How to Start Running | Beginner’s Edition |Sara Kurth & Gojenbefit

Running isn’t just for the professionals or experts. I have said this before in one of my previous post. But it does not hurt to know what an expert runner says about how someone who is brand new to running can go about starting their running journey.

Running is my 3rd love besides bodycombat and turbokick. Running is very liberating and is simple to start but intimidating at times. There are many questions about running many of us that are or were beginners need answers to.

I have called in the BIG GUNS for this one. My #Sweatpink sister Sara Kurth is a running coach and has ran marathons and she is pretty freaking awesome if I may add. I have asked her to answer some of the frequent questions that beginners ask when wanting to start a running journey.
