Health and fitness blog: Five tips for pounding the pavement

Ah, fall. When the leaves change colour, the school bells ring, and new routines begin. If you’re anything like me, you might be looking to hit up a healthier lifestyle, but have no idea how to go about it. The following tips helped me when I began running in May. Since then my head is clearer, I feel happier, and although I can still struggle with motivation, overall I’ve improved a lot.
