About a year ago, I tried to start up a running club, of sorts. I just wanted some of my friends to run with me in the mornings in order to help motivate me. However, it just didn't really go over well (oddly enough I was able to start up a softball team instead, but that's for another post). It's really hard for working moms & stay-at-home moms to find time to exercise. So I abandoned the idea and ran sporadically for the past year. Recently, though (due mostly to my sudden & unexplainable weight gain) I made myself start getting up early in the morning to run. I have been using the coolest app on my phone called RunKeeper. It gives me all the stats on my running and allows me to just "head out" and run wherever I feel like running.
Next thing I know I have 3 other friends using the same app while they run. And presto, change-o I have a running group. We each run on our own, but post our workout to facebook. I must admit that every morning I log in to see what my buddies have done for the day. I am motivated by their commitment & guilted as well (that is my own bag of worms, though). So, anyway thanks to my running friends!!
Now if this pesky weight would just go away!!
