'Tis the Season for getting in shape!
Sure, it's not summer anymore and it's not even January 1st when we all "make our Resolutions." But, 'tis the season for getting in shape - 'tis always the season for getting in shape!
Here at ClubSport San Ramon we are in the process of starting, developing and growing our very own Run Club! What might this Run Club include? Gait analysis, introduction with a trainer, group races, once a month track workouts, quarterly socials, ClubSport log book, online tracking, Run Club water bottles and potentially much more!
So what are the BENEFITS of an Organized Run Club? Here are our Top 4 Benefits:
- Social Group Expansion - Perhaps you are just moving into a new area and are looking to meet people. Or perhaps you just want to expand your current social network. Whatever the case may be, running with other people is a great way to get to know other people with similar interests.
- Motivation - Belonging to a Run Club could be your "accountability" ticket. How many days have you told yourself, "Tonight I am going to run," only to have "tonight" come and go? Your Run Club Group will hold you accountable for being there as often as you can. This may be the "extra push" for motivation you need.
- Team - You are not alone. You will hear the clanking of many other shoes all around you as you take one stride and then the next. You will have your own personal cheering squad, since everyone is there encouraging each other to keep going. This support group will also be there should you decide to do races or endure long runs.
- Improved Performance - Run Clubs are not about serious competition - usually(!) However, everyone thrives on a little healthy competition every now and then. When you are running with other people, it's only natural that you will run faster and harder. All of this could potentially take your running to the next level!
