To ensure that you get the most out of your experience in the clinic, come with a positive frame of mind and an eagerness to learn about the many benefits of running. Also, coming willing to share your own goals, stories, and knowledge, as each member will enhance the overall clinic’s experience. We encourage you to wear reflective clothing and/or running lights. Eating a carbohydrate gel before the workout for fuel is a good idea also.
