It' s easier to do hard things when you have friends to carry you along. That was the idea behind the Half Marathon, Full Challenge group and series - to have a group of like minded half marathon lovers join together to get through the Half Marathon Challenge. We have had 38 runners formally join in the challenge and many admitted lurkers have been stopping by. It' s not too late to join in. If you are running a half marathon and would like some additional virtual support, join the group and join in the conversation!
The reason why Tom and I created Runners' Lounge was to connect runners. We do believe you can' t know too many runners or have too many running friends. As you are stopping by the Lounge this week, do me a favor. Introduce yourself to a runner you see in the Lounge but haven' t met. Reach out to runners who share your goals, physical location or other things you enjoy. Take the initiative to introduce yourself or leave a comment of encouragement. I guarantee it will make your day and boost the spirits of the other runner.
And if you can' t join in all the conversations in the Lounge, then take one with you. Download this week' s Half Marathon podcast on mental training and hear the conversation in the Lounge on the topic.
