Read Assistant Editor Gigi Campo's journey as a runner
Running can be tough on your joints and muscles, but with the proper training and technique, you can avoid injury. Gigi writes about her experience, and recommends The New Rules of Running.
In 2011, I decided I was going to become a runner. I started going for training runs of two and three miles, and they were great. Three mile runes gave way to four mile runs. The scenery flew by, pedestrians obligingly stepped aside when they heard my footsteps, birds chirped specifically to cheer me along as I ran. I was going to be the next Joan Benoit. No, the next Usain Bolt! But a Usain Bolt who also runs marathons.
