Fitness is an essential part of our daily lives. It can improve quality of life and reduce the risk of injury. There are many fitness choices available today in your home, at your local gym, and online. An excellent, low-cost option for staying fit and improving your health is running. There are many benefits to running that you could take advantage of right now – according to 12 Benefits of Running That Make You Healthier (and Happier).
Despite the benefits, motivation is one of the key reasons that many people do not run. This is why I am excited to launch Inspire Virtual Runs! My vision is to build a community that inspires each other to run and achieve their fitness goals. In many areas of life, having a goal helps you stay focused and motivated. Inspire Virtual Runs community can help you reach your goals through online resources, accountability, and inspiration.
If you are new to running, a common goal to set is running your first 5K! The distance is 3.1 miles, which is short enough to be achievable and long enough to be challenging. Having a goal to run your first 5K race is a great way to have something to work towards and stay motivated. However, running with hundreds of people could be intimidating, especially if you are just getting started. An alternative that you may consider is virtual races. Virtual races are a low-risk way of easing into racing for beginners. If you have already run your first 5K, then virtual racing is a convenient way to supplement your races without the hassle of parking and crowds.
Inspire Virtual Runs can help you get to your first 5K or your next race. Here is how to get started:
