  • You're flying!

    You're not pounding the pavement, you're flying!

    When walking, one foot is always on the ground.

    When running, most of the time you're in the air.

    Consider this: If you take 180 steps per minute for a 9:00 mile, you took 1620 steps, if your foot is 12 inches long you were on the ground for 1620 feet and airborne for 3660 feet. 70% of the run you are in the air!

    So, you instead of thinking of running as pounding the pavement, think of running as flying!!!
