But most everyone can learn to run, especially if they have the right equipment and know-how to get started. Discover the joys of running, beginning with today’s post for Guelph apartment residents from our preferred property management company, Williams and McDaniel.


Start with the shoes


The first step in learning to run is to start at your feet. A good pair of running shoes is a necessity, important not just for comfort, but also for preventing injury. Ask a staff member at a local running store to help you pick out the perfect pair of running shoes. Running Works (89 Gordon Street) is just a ten-minute walk from The Sovereign Apartments (66 Macdonell Street). You can also try the Running Room (Market Square East, 160 Kortright Road), less than a ten-minute drive from Kortright Apartments (79-83 Conroy Crescent).


Explore new trails


Now that you have new shoes, it’s time to give them a try. Explore the trails near your Guelph apartment this summer. Residents at Terrace Towers (125 Raymond Street) are only steps away from Silvercreek Trail. This scenic local path follows the river, winding its way to Royal City Park. The trail is about five kilometres in length.


Find a support system


Learning and maintaining a new type of workout by yourself is always difficult, no matter which activity you choose. Find a friend or join a running club to give yourself the extra support you need to turn running into a regular habit that you enjoy. You can find multiple running clubs, training programs and even virtual programs at the Running Room. You can also join an independent running group, such as The Guelph Victors.


Start small


Remember that learning takes time. Set small manageable goals as you get started. Download a running app to manage and record your runs. With a little dedication and hard work, you will be amazed at your progress.
There is no better time to start running than today. The blog team at Williams and McDaniel hopes that today’s post helps jumpstart you towards your new running goals. For additional information about their Guelph apartments, simply visit their website.
