Happy Friday! If you have been here before or seen any of my social pics, you have probably seen and heard me gush about how much I completely adore my Moms Run This Town group. I could go on and on about why I love my running tribe and how valuable I think having a running tribe is. But I’ve narrowed it down to my top 5 reasons!
The Value of Finding A Running Tribe
We all have days where we might just want to hit that snooze button and sleep in but I know my gang is waiting for me. I’ve said I will be there and that’s enough to get me up and out there. Plus I have serious FOMO when I can’t make it.
My tribe can pretty much talk me into almost anything! When I first heard about those crazy Ragnar relay races a few years back, I never in a million years would have thought that I would ever run one. I mean how ridiculous does it sound to run for 36 hours straight for 200 miles? Fast forward a few years and well, I’ve done 3!
Step it up a notch
Wondering how you might pick your pace up a bit or try to to add on another mile? The miles seem to fly by on the group runs and you just might be surprised by your pace as well. #SquadGoals
When you are part of group, there is no reason to run alone when you have a built in data base of friends. Be more visible to cars and avoid other outdoor dangers while running in a pack.
I don’t know if it’s the bond of being moms or I am just the luckiest person out there. Never would I have expected that so many of my running crew would become my closest most treasure friends. The support, love and encouragement we provide each other is priceless.
Tell me- Have I convinced you yet that you must “run” right this minute and join a running group?
Check out the national MRTT page to see if there is a group by you.
