Get Prepped for the Running Season

It’s that time of the year, when the weather becomes potentially discouraging and the couch’s beckoning feels more persuasive than usual. We all know what these signs mean… now is the time to kickstart your training for the running season!

Make a note in your calendars because some of the country’s biggest running events are on the horizon, and entries often need to be submitted sooner, rather than later, to secure your place. Here are just a few, which may help motivate you to say ‘no’ to the winter comfort food and ‘yes’ to going for a quick jog:
