Good ideas to help with youth running. Also, will use some of the ideas with new adult runners.

A lot of time was spent on picking the right shoes and shopping for shoes. It would have been more beneficial to go into specifics such as age appropriate variations, progressions, and observations. Having a section on student reflection was a good addition.
