1. Greet Other Runners


Everyone likes a cheery face! Running with a smiling face may also allow you to feel happier and let you enjoy your run more. Besides, it’s nice to be friendly, isn’t it?

2. Keep Running Lighthearted


We understand: running is serious business. But whether you’re training for an ultra marathon or just trying to plan your evening run, running is your hobby after all. Running is life, but life is not all about running. Keep a balance, and enjoy the other aspects of life too. Let’s keep running fun!

3. Run Safe


Stick to some sensible safety rules when it comes to running: don’t wear earphones in busy traffic, wear reflective clothing when it is dark, run on the correct side of the road and always tell someone where you’re going.

4. Tackle Your Doubts


At some point you’re going to push yourself harder, you’re going to enter into a gray area that can be painful, and you’re going to doubt yourself. Push through it. Never think you are mentally weak.
