Even though the weather is warming up and flowers are blooming, some days I find it hard to motivate myself to get out and go for a run. You too? So why not find a running group or club in your area? I just discovered this great resource on the Cool Running website. It has a list of all the US states, so you just click on your state and it tells you about the running clubs and associations near you. Depending on the group you choose, they run for different reasons — for fun and for exercise. Some groups organize track workouts, group runs, races, and trainings for marathons.
Running with a group of people is not only a great way to get you moving, but you'll also make friends who have similar interests as you and learn a ton about running.
