Ah, wintertime travel. There’s nothing more magical than waking up at the crack of dawn, piling on a mishmash of warm winter clothes, and getting stuck in traffic while you're already late for your flight.
Ok, maybe winter travel isn’t so magical after all. We can't do anything about the lines at security, but we can work on packing our bulky winter clothes more effectively.

You’ve got your brand new pair of running shoes and an energetic playlist on Spotify. The course is all mapped out, and you couldn’t be more excited to start your new running routine.
While excitement is a necessary ingredient to fall in love with running, it’s also important to remember that running can put your body through a lot of stress. If you push yourself too far, or don't properly prepare, running can easily result in injury.
If you're new to running (or even if you're not but need a refresher), these four tips will help you prevent injuries so you can keep up with your plans to get in shape.
Any runner who says they have never been injured is either 1. #blessed or 2. a dirty liar. Even those who have never been injured have probably had to take a few days off due to illness or just life happening when you least expect it.
Unfortunately, any of these can wreak havoc on a runner’s training plan. If you are lucky, the disruption is fairly minor and only results in a few days off. In other circumstances, you lose weeks, months or even a year.
