Top takeaways from this episode
- It’s never too late– Amy found running later in life and is a very talented athlete! Sure, she races frequently now, but the running community is what brought her in. If you’re a runner already, perhaps asking your pal to join you is a better approach than strong arming him/her into the next race!
- Schedule it– if you’ve been a parent for a while, you’ve probably found that if something is not on the calendar it doesn’t happen. Get buy in from your spouse, get creative (laps around the soccer field during your kid’s game, anyone?), make that running schedule happen!
- Don’t assume that you have to do your entire workout all at once. Take advantage of short amounts of time to run. If you have 15 minutes to run on the treadmill before you start making dinner, go for it. Then, while dinner is cooking, jump on for another 15 minutes. Many marathons have been trained for in multiple bouts throughout the day
