What to Expect

What to Expect

When running, expect that you are going to get somewhere faster than just walking, it will be fun, and it wil be great exercise! It's something you can do all on your own, but it's also fun to run with others.  If you develop a passion for it, you might start going on longer runs to discover new things or you might enter events like 5k, 10k, marathons or even ultramarathons.

Gear Up!

Gear Up!

The great thing about running is that you really don't need any gear, expcept a good pair of shoes.

Some people even run barefoot, but you need to get your feet used to it first.

It's always a great idea to carry water for long runs.

Dress Cool

What to Wear

Depending on the weather you can wear a shirt and shorts or you can dress in layers as NM temperatures change rapidly.

Good socks and shoes are a must, but some people get used to running in toe shoes like Five Fingers, which make it seem like you're running barefoot.

You Might See...

You Might See…

Anything and everything; your neighbor, the city or even a forest, depending on where you decide to run. You can listen to music and just focus on running or without headphones you can enjoy the sights and sounds of the particular terrain you are running on.
