But I remember being in a running slump. And I remember someone posting the Saturday run. And I finally said I was going. And you know what? I found a great running group to run with. And because of them, I've met several running buddies. I'm a better runner. I'm faster. I run farther. And I'm proud to be a River Runner.
I hear people comment that they are intimidated, and they will eventually come out for a run. My advice? Show up. We all started somewhere. We all have goals. We all have faced fears. And we all have something in common - We Are Runners.
So if there is a local running group in your area, and you've toyed with the idea of joining them for a run, I say do it. It's one of the best decisions that I have made when it comes to my running.
