Side by Side

What are the best perks of having a running partner?

  1. Having someone buzz your cell phone till you pick up, encouraging you to run even when you don’t feel like it.
  1. Having someone at the same fitness level and speed—no need to feel like it’s a competition.
  1. Catching up on the latest gossip and water-cooler moments—passes the time and the friendship doesn’t hurt either!
  1. Safety in numbers—especially for those scenic, excluded trails.
  1. These are great, but see my comments below!

Here are some Ys with some running clubs where you can meet a running buddy.
