Recreational Running, For Fun and Health!

Do you enjoy recreational running as much as I do? If not, you soon will!

It's my intention to get you excited about the numerous benefits of running.

Whether you're a first-time runner or somebody who's experienced, but let the habit slip, runtobehealthy.com will inspire you to make this healthy habit part of your life.

Time to get into the habit of running for fun and health!

Important! Sense of Humor Required

Some running websites take themselves waaaaay too seriously. I know, because I've been there, checked them out, and hit the BACK button.

You won't find any pious, preachy articles here. Everything on my website is designed to make running more fun.

Forget "no pain no gain," pushing yourself to the limit and all that rot. We're here to improve your health, but not at the expense of enjoying life.

I make running a priority (read my story here), but not so much so that I'll push through an injury, skip important family time because "I have to run now," or not take downtime when I feel like it.

I run for FUN. Serious fun. So should you.

Take Baby Steps to Better Health

Don't let the weather be your excuse for not running. Get into the gym and onto the treadmill!

We'll get you started in no time at all – and keep you going, just when traditionally you would have been ready to quit!

Diet is a huge consideration for improving your health. This website is not going to start advising you to drop 50 pounds by eating carrots and spinach.

However, you can become a more efficient runner using the best protein products – and I've pretty much tried every single one on the market. Find out what I use to keep my body functioning at its best.

Putting your best foot forward means choosing suitable running shoes. No matter whether you stick to sprint workouts or are training for a marathon, you're going to need help picking the best pair for you.

Start here. I'll do my best to help – and flat-footed runners really need it!
