I always wanted to be a runner. I do run some but not enough although I have been thinking about joining a running club. I don’t know if that will be the thing for me or not but it certainly something I am interested in. I put together five reasons why I think it is a good idea to join a running club.
A running club will motivate you. That is something that I need more than anything else. I need someone to help motivate me into running and working out.
A running club will teach you structured workouts. Yes, running by itself is a workout but you need to do complimentary workouts in order to become a stronger runner.
Races and Marathons
Lets face it if you are wanting to run a race or even just attend an event a running club will have that information for you.I am thinking about training for a 5k next year. I am not sure if it is something I can even do but even if I train for it I wouldn’t know where the next race will be. A club will help me with that.
You can meet new people who enjoy the things that you do. You don’t have to explain to them that you are training or why you enjoy running. If you are new to an area this is also a great way to learn more about the area from people who live there.
If you are wanting run more regularly a club will help with that. Since you will meet daily, weekly, whatever you will be more likely to get your run in. You won’t say that you don’t want to run by yourself or whatever.
Are you in a running club? Can you share your thoughts? Are you considering joining one? Let us know in the comments below.
