10 Hacks to Help Runners



Running Hack #1.

If you have a morning race or workout, decrease your warm up time with a hot/cold/hot shower before you go.


Running Hack #2.

Wrap blisters in band-aid and duct tape to avoid further injury when racing.


Running Hack #3.

Grab a cup of coffee 1/2 an hour before running to boost your workout performance.


Running Hack #4.

If you don’t have a gel or sports drink available, you can drink a flat Coke for fuel.


Running Hack #5.

Get two pairs of running shoes and rotate them to help prevent injury.


Running Hack #6.

Gauge ‘comfortable pace’ during training with the talk test or by singing the Brady Bunch theme song. If you can’t, you’re going too fast.

Take cash, phone, and toilet paper on runs lasting more than 90 minutes. Better to have and not need, than to need and not have.

Leave a message on the fridge

Running Hack #8.

Write down your training goal, race goal, etc. and stick it on your refrigerator. It’ll keep you accountable and remind others to support you.


Running Hack #9.

When it rains, use lots of Vasoline all over everything that could chafe, blister, or rub. Trust me on this.


Running Hack #10.

Run with a friend. It makes the miles easier.
