In the comments of another #Runtober post, tons of people mentioned the benefit of running with a group… and that’s something I’d never done before… until this last weekend, when I headed out with the other FitFluential Ambassadors to run with Reebok’s Run Club that they’re testing out. It was a quick two miles, but it was laced with boot-camp-style workouts every third of a mile. Did you see a bunch of people squatting, on one leg, in Bryant Park this past Saturday? Yep.. that was us.
The run was fun and I can see how running with a team can give one that extra push to go even harder but, as I’ve said before, I’m a loner. I run solo… if you’re not counting the puppies.
That being said… what running groups do you run with? Have you given group running a try? Are you a lone runner? Did you dislike your group run experience? What makes group running valuable to you?
