Spring is right around the corner – which means an abundance of local 5Ks in the Boston area. Signing up for your local road race can be a great way to kick start your 2018 running goals in a fun, less intimidating fashion.
When it comes to training, consistency is key. Start slow with short jogs a few times per week. Use a running app to track your progress and keep increasing your distance and speed as the weeks go by.
Remember, fuel, hydration and rest are essential in staying healthy and avoiding injury before or during the race. Happy running!
