I joined the ARC Running Club end of February this year. I never thought of myself as a runner, but since I was feeling bored going to the gym, this was such a blessing for me. This group has members as young as 5yrs old to 60 yrs old, from different walks of life, and multitude of reasons why they run. Most of them have done multiple marathons; some did triathlons, others 5k’s or 10K’s, still others the iron man competitions. One member has a goal of training for ultra marathon. This group is quite special; they care about how you can achieve your goal. It’s funny because, I have a couple of them who asks me religiously how many times I ran in the week, and my constant answer is,” twice” (we meet twice a week, hahaha). I still haven’t captured the state where I can run by myself and run often. I just want to be able to lace up my running shoes without thinking about it, and just run. I’m a little apprehensive right now because my first 5K Run is in one week and I haven’t done the necessary preparations for it. I guess you’ll know what happens in a week.
