Four of my insanely cool coworkers and I decided to start a little running club. Or... we are running 2-3 times a week and it has become a little club? Today was our second time and I am so proud of them! I just have to share. If this inspires even just one person, than I'm happy. One of our runners is super-beginner. Meaning, not only does she never run, but she also loathes it. BUT her attitude is awesome so she has been accomplishing a lot in a short amount of time. Actually ALL of their attitudes are awesome. Our goals have been small to start off: run for .5mi, walk for .25mi, run for .5mi, and so on. We were sore from the first day and today was a bit easier and we ran for longer. I looked forward to us running 3 times next week... and it getting easier as our lungs get more comfortable and our muscles slowly build. One of the best parts is that we're all doing it together, it's incredibly encouraging. I'm thankful to have such health-driven peers! I will admit - the convenient factor in this is that we run at a park/track that is literally a block from our work.
It's great to breathe fresh air and the curvy path keeps us occupied.
If you have any work friends or girlfriends that want to improve their health, start a running club.
Having teammates makes it more fun!
