Funny running, racing or training moment: The time it was so cold that Hayley brought a popsicle for her fuel that day. Number one tip for beginners: Just do it! It doesn’t have to be fast or pretty or feel amazing to be effective. Consistency is so important, and just getting up and getting out despite the weather, how you feel that day or that nagging voice in your head will help you to build your base and see improvements if you just keep going. Also, be kind to yourself and have fun with this amazing group of people!
