Today there are many ways to achieve our personal fitness goals, as an experienced runner I encourage other non-runners to come out so we can show you how “cool” running really is. Runners, we can become better runners and be less injury prone by learning from other athletes focusing on other means of fitness. Lets all Experience Running!
Most exciting we have a 1 mile option. Run 1 mile as fast as possible, it doesn’t get any more challenging or fun. A great tool for laying out your next race plan is knowing your 1 mile time. Also a great tool to even the playing field for all styles of fitness and to guage our individual strengths and weaknesses. 1 mile races are for all of us and fastly growing in to the most popular race distance in large metropolitan areas.
