Short episode summary

In this episode, Coaches Caroline and Valerie discuss the concept of needing a reason to run and share stories from runners they've encountered. They also emphasize focusing on improving your movement and form rather than just getting through a run.


Timestamps of big takeaways

[00:23] Coaches Caroline and Valerie introduce the concept of needing a reason or event to run. Coach Valerie also shares a story about runners she encountered recently.


The Post-Race Blues 

[02:21] Sometimes there's difficulty in transitioning from training for a race to just running for enjoyment, leading to signing up for the next event.


Enjoying Running for Its Own Sake 

[03:51] Some runners do genuinely enjoy running without needing races or groups.


[04:40] - When injuries prevent training and racing, it can reveal a deeper love of running itself beyond the events and desire to get “more miles.”


[05:59] Most running groups focus more on grinding through runs rather than enjoying the experience. 


Being Accountable For Your Running Accessories 

[08:23] The warm up, cooldown, drills, and exercises are as important as the run itself for injury prevention and performance. The RunRX community provides accountability for doing these accessory parts of a run routine. 


Having An Enjoyable Conversation About Your Runs 

[10:34] Sharing how a run felt and what you focused on leads to a more enriching post-run conversation than just discussing mileage. The RunRX community creates this same camaraderie around the experience of running.


Overcoming Excuses For Not Running 

[12:01] Many runners say they "aren't really runners" as an excuse to avoid running. Improving how you move will make you want to run more and overcome excuses.
