When I signed on to run my first Boston Marathon, I don’t think I really understood what I had gotten into.
I had run a marathon before, but never trained through the winter. I had normally taken most of my running inside during the winter, but I knew with long runs of more than 10 miles looming, I would have to take my training to the great outdoors. I didn’t know anyone else that was training that winter so most of my long runs were solo, and the winter weather was a shock to the system! I had questions about such things as what to wear, where to run, what to eat, and what to do about that crazy wind that blows off the water!” – Jennie Sheridan
If this sounds like you… we have the group for you!
Over the last few weeks in the GBRC-Swampscott store, we’ve had the opportunity to meet and talk to many local runners who are training for the 2014 Boston Marathon and other spring marathons. It may be your first, your 10th or 25th marathon, but through our experience we know that it never hurts to have local running pals to join for long runs, camaraderie, commiseration, and a little fun. Ask questions, set up meeting times for runs, share your experiences, offer advice, talk gear, solve the world’s problems…it can all be done!
