    You didn't mention what kind of cramps or what part of your body. Muscle cramps can be caused by dehydration, so make sure you're well hydrated AND consuming electrolytes if needed (plain water isn't always enough). If stomach cramps, it could be because you didn't wait long enough after eating, to go for your run. The article below may give you some ideas of what to do or consider: https://www.webmd.com/fitness-exercise/features/ho...

      Another possibility is that Maya is experiencing side stitches.

    you don't stretch and do a warmup beforehand.

    Stretch before, drink water or a good sports drink. Otherwise, maybe you're doing something wrong with your body.
