      Spring Running Tips:

      • Layer as appropriate - cool Spring mornings can warm up quickly
      • Hydration and sunscreen - don't let cool temps fool you in to forgetting sunscreen and hydration.
      • Check your shoes - is it time to invest in a new pair? 
      • Start out slowly and build up gradually if returning to running
      • Sign up for a "goal race" to motivate those training miles!
