Lipo batteries with brushed motors

Hi,
I have a newbie question. I use lipo batteries with brushed motors. These are small 3 cell lipos. I'm currently using these with a speed 300 motor. So far I've been crashing very early after launch so the motors don't get a chance to heat up. Is there any hazard running this setup?
