2) Shiny shoes. We've all been there, right? We walk into the sports store and immediately are drawn to the colorful, shiny sneakers. Never mind that they may not be a good fit. "I'm going to look amazing with those on my feet!" It's also no wonder I had ankle and knee issues in high school, and needed orthotics by my senior year. I couldn't do much about the lack of support in soccer cleats, but you'd think I would've wised up way beforehand and gotten fitted for running shoes.
3) Not taking advice. Another place we've all been, right? Over confident teenagers and we don't need anybody's help! This is why I made sure to ask plenty and often to get this running thing down. I hadn't listened at all growing up, and I was starting from scratch.
