Top 5 Reasons Running is Better Together
While running solo has it’s benefits, running with a buddy can take your training to new levels. Here are the top 5 reasons to run with a buddy or a group.
Accountability: You can’t let your friends down. You may be feeling tired or lazy, but your friend is counting on you to join them on that run. Scheduling a run with a friend or training group will help you get out the door – and you know you’ll be happier you did!
Run Farther: It’s much easier to convince yourself that it’s ok to turn around early and call it a day. But with a friend by your side, you’re more likely to keep going so you don’t cut their run short too. Plus, with a friend by your side, the miles fly by.
Run Faster: Find a friend or training group that runs your goal pace and you’ll find yourself naturally running faster just to keep up.
Switch things up: Your friend or running group can introduce you to new routes and races you never heard or before. Running together can help you step out of your comfort zone and explore a whole new world of running.
Fun: You may have thought running was fun before, but add good conversation, jokes, and good vibes, and you’ll be calling your buddy up to run with you all the time. Plus, those post-race festivals are more fun when you have a friend there to celebrate your shared accomplishments with!
