I love to run in races. It’s a chance to toe up to the starting line with a few hundred or thousand like-minded people. You get snacks, a nifty tee shirt and a shiny medal to show off your accomplishment. And it’s even more fun to run with friends. Because then you have people to have breakfast with once the race is over.
If you are a new or long time runner and are interested in entering a race, grab some friends and pick a 5K, obstacle course or mud run to start. You can walk, walk-run or run almost any events so speed doesn’t matter.
Plan to hit the expo together, get your freebies and then carpool to the race. Having a friend or two will allow you to shake off the nerves and pretty soon you’ll be running and chatting and having a blast!
Here are some upcoming races that you and your posse can do together.
Now go run!
