RUN TALL: Keep your head over your shoulders, your shoulders over your hips, your hips over your knees, and your knees over your feet.

KEEP IT QUICK AND LIGHT: Shoot for 165 to 180 steps per minute; imagine you’re running on hot coals.

STAY RELAXED: Keep your jaw, neck, shoulders, and arms loose but engaged.
