  • What you can do to improve your running form (with some specific drills to practice).
  • How to distinguish between "good pain" and "bad pain".
  • The most common injury Greg sees in new runners and best practices to help you avoid injury.
  • Greg's general tips for new runners to help stay motivated and injury free.

Cheers,
