Def go to a running store and get fitted for shoes.

About running longer than 10 min, maybe you should change your focus to distance, try a run/walk, etc. after a few weeks doing something other than just trying to see how long you can run...you'll be amazed how easy 10 minutes is...and perhaps you will have run 20 minutes.

Hi Carolina,

Patience. It takes time to become a runner. Remember that you need to appreciate your non-run days as much as you do your running days. Your body makes the adaptation to running when you are not running, so don't feel the need to run every day.

That being said, if you have not been fitted for running shoes by your local running specialty store, I would start there. The personnel are trained to analyze your gait as well as discuss your goals and find a shoe that is best for you.

RUN SPARK HAPPY!

Coach Nancy
