1. Connect with Others
It can be hard to find the motivation to go out for a run especially if you’ve had a long day. When you have people supporting you it isn’t just about getting exercise, it’s about finding those connections and building lifelong friendships. Being a part of a group is something so special that everyone should experience.
Doing things on your own can be scary at times, especially when you are unfamiliar with area you are running in. Having people run with you provides a safety factor. Ever heard of the saying “safety in numbers”? Having a group of people to run with can automatically make you feel more comfortable in your surroundings.
3. Provides Accountability and Support
When doing an activity by yourself, it can be a challenge to want to push yourself to go further. Having friends push you and support you can make a big difference in how you work out and grow as a person. Everyone has bad days but having others to run with will encourage you to not give up and you might even set a personal record!
The next time you plan to go out for a run, bring a couple friends or family members with you. Not only to challenge yourself but to also spend quality time with them out in the community!
