The 10 Worst Mistakes I’ve Made as a Runner

On this episode, I share my roundup of the worst mistakes I’ve made since I started running in 2008.

Show Notes: 

10. Wearing the wrong size sports bra.

My current favorite running bra is the Brooks UpLift Crossback.

9. Running that one time I had a fever.

8. Not fully prioritizing my training.

I’m happy to get the miles in, but I get really lazy when it comes to foam rolling, cross-training, and stepping up my nutrition game.

7. Getting way too emotionally invested in running and taking the hard runs hard.

6. Being a slave to my Garmin and obsessing over data.
