The Power of a Group

One of the things I have always liked about running is the singularity of the sport.  If I want to go run, I don’t have to find a partner or make a tee time.  I can walk out the front door and run.

Last year I started working the training programs at the local Fleet Feet store.  I have enjoyed running with a group and encouraging and coaching them.

This morning I ran with a group that I knew would push me.  It was great.

I am looking forward to my long solo run tomorrow but I am also looking forward to Saturday  running with the Fleet Feet group and the next time I run with the Wednesday crowd.

Sure, I can run by myself but I am learning that it takes a combination of experiences to become a well rounded runner.
