Made A Commitment To A Running Team

This Sparked Me!

I recently joined a local running club. Having payed the annual fee and and stated my commitment to this small group is motivating me to keep going for the runs. Before joining the club, I repeatedly made excuses for not running, since I was not accountable to others.

    I'm joining my FIRST running club this year.
Some clubs require you have a base of fitness or speed; others take complete beginners and use intervals like the C25K program to help them complete their first race.
Team in Training requires fund raising for a great cause.
So there are lots of options, but you will make friends, learn helpful tips, get support, and enter (& complete) an event together. emoticon
