SENZON | Running the Risk of Injury

I’ll just go for an easy run — it will all be fine. 

These are the words I told myself after waking up from my weekly Saturday run with slight hip pain. 

Running is a high-impact sport, which means many runners run the risk of injury throughout their careers. Unlike many long-time athletes, I started my running career by turning a blind eye to the possibility of getting injured. Growing up, I always enjoyed sports and the rush of adrenaline that came with it; that said, I was no more athletic than the average person. I never foresaw falling in love with a sport like running, nor did I ever believe I could run a half-marathon three weeks into discovering this newfound passion.
