Looking around on the internet today and ran across this article from the Buffalo News: Running: Lessons learned every step of the way
I was enjoying the article and then I got to the quotes from normal people about what they wished they knew when they started running. That is when I could really relate to the article…more than one person talks about groups. Running groups or clubs are an invaluable tool to gain knowledge, motivation and accountability.
Run Richmond keeps me motivated. Without this group I doubt I would still be logging the miles each week that I am. So I want to say thank you to everyone that shows up to our group runs. We are all part of a good thing. If you don’t want to take my word for it listen to this random guy from Buffalo…
“I wish I had known about running groups before I started running. It seemed a very lonely activity. Now I look forward to the days our retiree group gets together during the week and to Saturdays with the group at the Ridge. Everyone encourages each other. When injuries happen there is always someone who experienced the same thing and can offer excellent suggestions on recovery.”
