Take your workout to the races

There are many road races in the New England area. You can almost pick a race any weekend for most any distance.

Don't won't to race?

Don't. Use it as your workout! Think about it.
  • The course is marked and protected (police coverage, volunteers at the corners, etc.)
  • There are usually timers or mile markers
  • There are usually water stops
Why not run your workout in a local race?

It does cost a nominal fee but look at the advantages you gain.

Not sure about running alone?

Depending upon the size of the race, there will be someone running your pace. You may not find them at the start but surely along the course you can find who is running your pace.

Give it a shot.

Think about taking your workout to the races.

Once the entry fee is paid, you get all the assistance you need. The only thing left for you to do is to stick to your workout plan. Do not get caught up in the race!

May the roads/trails be kind to you!
