“When you run alone, you run fast. But when you run together, you run far.”
By working in a gym for many years, I have seen my share of running groups. What I love about these groups is the support they give. It doesn’t matter if you have never ran a day in your life or if you have run ten marathons, the members of that group are there for each other. At 5am people are waiting on you to go on the morning run and if you don’t show up, you’ll get a phone call wanting to know why. They have a common goal, for each member to grow as an athlete. The members are there to give support, encouragement, advise and most of all to make sure you succeed as a runner.
Who’s on your team? Who knows your dreams? Who knows you well enough to glimpse your potential as it emerges? Who can nurture and encourage you for the distance so that you become the person you were meant to be?
We were not designed to walk this life alone. If you don’t have a close group of friends already, I encourage you to get involved and connected.
