Why do running injuries happen? (and how to prevent them)

Over the years, I’ve surveyed tens of thousands of runners. And it’s not surprising that the #1 goal is to always run injury-free.

That’s because injuries are direct obstacles to you achieving your goals. In every way, they limit your performance.

If you’re hurt:

  • You can’t run. If you can’t run, then you can’t get in great shape to run fast.
  • You’re not developing skills. With no drills, strides, or workouts, you’re not developing athleticism.
  • You can’t race. If you can’t race, then you can’t develop mental toughness and resilience.

Therefore, injury prevention must be a top goal for every runner.

Take it seriously. Work tirelessly to stay healthy – so you can race faster, train more consistently, and find more joy in running.
