And you can read it below as well...please add any of your own tips for new runners to the end!:
The goal of my blog is to inspire others to dream big and shoot for the stars with their goals. I just ran my first road race in 2010 and at that time I would have never dreamed about qualifying for the Boston Marathon, but you never know what you’re capable of until you try. So that’s why I want to give each of you 5 simple tips for getting you started with running…so that you can take off, make it your own and discover what you’re capable of too.

3) Remember that the hardest part of running is getting out the door. Not many people get super excited before heading out for a jog…but once you get started, the feeling is pretty darn incredible and you won’t regret it. Schedule a time to go running ahead of time and stick with it—I prefer running before work, otherwise it just will NOT get done.
