Joining A Club

2010-03-13 CRR Mt Mee Fun Run 652Joining a running club can be scary for some, especially if they don’t fit the common picture of running figure. The figure I refer to is the long, lean legs, flat abs and quite commonly, small chest. I think this is a common misconception of what a runner actually is.

Runners come in all shapes and sizes from tall with legs a mile long, to short and dumpy. A runner is just simple, someone who runs. You don’t have to fit a certain mould to call yourself a runner, let alone join a club. All you need is determination and perseverance.Joining a club can be beneficial to your running life as the people there will be able to offer you hints and tips on how to better yourself, coaching in areas you need and, quite possibly, a running buddy.

At the club I am a part of, we have 3 coaches who do different things. There is a coach for the kids, a coach for the newbies to advanced, and a coach for the more advanced, long distance runners. Each club session they do different things which are aimed at improving and pushing you. It doesn’t matter what level of fitness you are at, or what shape you are, you are encouraged to just do your best, and not keep up. The best thing is, that no one is competing against anyone else and the only person you need to beat is yourself.

So, take the plunge and go and visit the club, try it out and see if you like it, it could be just what you need.
