When starting to get into shape many people dread the thought of exercising. While getting in shape anyone can experience fun and fulfillment. The task of getting in shape will change one’s life for the better. When running anyone can experience a good time. “Running does more than help improve your physical and mental health” (Delorez and Hanc 16). Running allows anyone to develop into a healthier person.
When running one can run with a partner or a group of people. Physically running with someone creates bonding, companionship and competition. Training with someone for a race also provides and creates a positive mindset. A good fit for a running companion should consist of the same positive thinking and the same goals and inspirations (Barrios 128). Socializing while running can lead to many positive benefits to one’s life. “Don’t be surprised if you feel a bit more outgoing and social after beginning your program” (Liberman, Pribut, and DeVito 9). While running with a partner socializing can come very easy. When getting involved in running with a partner, one can use the motivation that a friend or an acquaintance can provide. Running allows time for meaningful relationships.
Joining a running club allows even the busiest people to escape from their hectic lifestyles and to venture out to meet new people. People discover that an active lifestyle creates a love of life (Delorez and Hanc 16). In every community people can find a running club. “Many people run because they like to socialize and be part of a running community” (Luff, "Benefits of Running"). A scheduled running time within the club can help create a routine structure. “Clubs tend to hold organized runs once or twice during the week, but smaller groups often splinter off to meet at other times as well” (Barrios 129).
