1. Proud Posture

1. Proud Posture

Run tall, run proud! Straighten your back and push your chest and hips forward. This allows gravity to help ease you into your next step. Keep your shoulders back and relaxed and never bend at the waist. Gaze straight ahead and avoid looking down at your feet or raising your chin. Chant “Run Proud, Run Tall” to yourself while you run.

Quick Tip:  Shoot the moon! To reset your posture, quickly pump your arms outward and upward at a 45-degree angle and retract them just as quickly. This pops your hips and chest forward into “run proud” position and keeps your back straight and your core engaged.
