How to Make a Runner Feel Loved

By Janelle @ Run With No Regrets | running tips

Running is a fun hobby, a stress reliever, and can evoke feelings of accomplishment and pride. But sometimes being a runner can be pretty lonely if your loved ones just don’t “get it”.

I don’t think it’s intentional, but if you’re a runner, have ever felt that you lacked support from your friends and family? Do you wish you had people to talk to about your training or someone waiting for you at the finish line?

I thought it would be helpful to share some tips on how to make a runner feel loved. Not only does this work around Valentine’s Day, but any time of the year where the runner in your life may be feeling a bit of stress from the weekly grind of race training.

If you have a partner, family member, or friend who runs, check out these tips on just a few small ways that you can support them!

By Janelle @ Run With No Regrets | running tips

We are rapidly approaching December and that means we’re wrapping up this year and moving on to the next!

Lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about what my race plan is for 2018.  I’ve already announced that I am signing up for a spring marathon (my second), but beyond that, I’m extremely flexible!  Since I’ve been hearing a lot from other runners/bloggers that they haven’t nailed down their race calendar, I thought this would be a great Running 101 topic to help you figure out where to go next!

That’s right, Running 101 is back in session!  I have really enjoyed creating posts catered to beginners and offering tips to help maximize your experience as a new runner while providing some friendly reminders to the more experienced runners!  I really hope you appreciate my tips on how to plan your next year of running – now is the time!
