Running- such a wonderful way to burn calories, enjoy the beautiful outdoors, and jam out to your favorite tunes. Some people are even crazy enough to run half, and full marathons (like our very own Kelcey, who was featured here) and really take this whole running sport to a whole new level! But did you know that 65% of runners are injuries their first year of the sport? Running injuries are more common than you think.

Although there are so many great benefits to running, there are also a few risks involved when it comes to training and running on a regular basis. Sharing these statistics is to help you be aware of the injuries, and also prepare you for the next steps if they do happen to affect you and your training.  Take a look at our running chart below that goes over what the common injuries are, recovery tips, and keeping you on track, literally.
