Have you ever wondered why your sneakers have an extra hole at the top?
Have you lost sleep wondering how these two little holes can help your weight loss? Well, wonder no more because Illumiseen had recorded a video telling you all about them.
There's no doubt that running can drastically speed up your weight loss and improve your cardiovascular health. It's also been known to improve your mood, increase your libido, and make you look hot in those short shorts of Summer.
But many new runners suffer from horrible blisters on one or both of their heels. After watching this video, you'll know how to avoid those painful blisters that can send you to the couch with a box full of Krispy Kreme donuts.
Pretty cool trick, don't you think?
Okay, so you have your new sneakers and you're ready to start running. Now what? Here are my five best tips for making your runs enjoyable:
Pick the tunes that really motivate you, inspire you, and keep you uplifted. Intentionally place your personal fight song halfway through your running track so it plays right when you need it most.
My running playlist always begins with “Little Red Wagon from Miranda Lambert. It gets me moving with the right beat so I can keep a steady pace. What will your start song be?
There are many apps available that allow you to track your distance and speed. My favorite is Nike Run Club. It's a great way to know where you're going, see where you've been, and look at all the progress you have made in between.
Another way to track your distance and time is with the Garmin Forerunner or Apple Watch. With the Garmin, there are different versions based on your budget and the features you desire. I used an Apple Watch and love it!
It's tempting, especially as a new runner, to get out there and hit the pavement every day. Don't do it! Unless you want to guarantee injury, burnout or both.
It doesn't matter how great of shape you are in before starting to run, running uses a different combination of muscles than every other sport. If you build your mileage, time, duration or frequency too quick, you're looking for trouble.
Start slow so you can have a long and enjoyable running life ahead of you.

Your body needs water to thrive and it needs even more water if you're running your butt off. If you prefer carrying your own fresh water, then grab a bottle and go. If you don't want to be bogged down then do your body good by planning your run around available drinking fountains.
With full disclosure, I must tell you that I prefer to do most of my runs alone. Why? Because it's often the only time in my day where I can get away from the phone, emails and all the interruptions involved in being a successful entrepreneur.
With that said, there are also mornings when I don't want to get out of bed to run, and the only thing that gets me up at 5 am, is my Charge Running app. With the Charge Running app, you schedule when you are going to run and you have a live coach to get you moving. It’s really pretty awesome! Check it out at chargerunning.com.
