I tried a few running groups but ran into the same problems as before:
I know I’m not everyone’s cup of tea, but I had to be someone’s.
Enter Twitter and the blogging world.
New friends? Check! New running buddies? Check! New studios to get my sweat on? Check!
Some of my newest and most exciting goals are coming straight from my Twitter friends.
200+ miles in 24 hours with 12 teammates in 2 vans? I’m in!
And the Twittersphere and Blogosphere have given me the opportunity to not only meet fellow runners and sweat-a-holics like myself, but it has introduced me to some of my favorite fitness gurus ever whom I love (and miss–WHY DOES EVERYONE LEAVE ME?!?!) dearly.
Ambassador Buddies forever!
Steven, DON’T GO!!!!!!! I mean, I guess it’s a great opportunity and all but we will miss you!
Plus, they tweet-cheer you on when you hit up their class or kick butt on a run!
So, if you’ve just moved or want to get into a fitness community or need a running buddy, take to the Internet! Hit up Twitter and make new friends. You’ll be surprised by how warm and welcoming everyone is. And, hey, you might meet your BrFF: Best running Friend Forever. I’m off to run with a new friend right now.
Now go out and run!
