“We run, not because we think it is doing us good, but because we enjoy it and cannot help ourselves…The more restricted our society and work become, the more necessary it will be to find some outlet for this craving for freedom. No one can say, ‘You must not run faster than this, or jump higher than that.’ The human spirit is indomitable.”
-Sir Roger Bannister, first runner to run a sub-4 minute mile
Whether chasing a racing dream or just getting the blood flowing running is often a pursuit of freedom. Some runners seek freedom from daily stresses, others from those few extra pounds still hanging on. As Winter continues to extend its icy arm getting out the door for a run can become difficult. This type of weather shows the true value of training with a group. Encouragement, conversation, and the knowledge that you are not the only one out there can help lace up the shoes. Every Wednesday evening at 7pm we will be ready to tackle the elements with you and help continue that pursuit of freedom!
