As so many runners have experienced, have a running good partner or group can keep you honest and motivated. Even more than that, a running group becomes your friend base, your place to go for camaraderie and your home for sanity revival. The running world is one that embraces optimism and inspiration. If you've ever experienced a race, you will see encouragement and cheering at every turn. It is so refreshing and inspirational for us all that this camaraderie goes beyond the race setting.
"It was so nice to be outside. I experienced something this weekend that I thought it was worth sharing to the group. What many of you might not realize is that there is a big running community in Greensboro. If you show up to Spence Love tennis courts on a Saturday morning there are tons of people informally gathering to run. All you need to do is show up. So this Saturday Mark and I decided to drive over to Spencer Love and go for a run. Mark was going to run 3 miles and I was going to attempt a 10 mile run. So we took off and we stayed together for the first 1.5 miles before Mark made the turn to go back. I continued on my run. I happened to be wearing proudly my NoBo’s shirt that I earned after completing my first session with NoBo’s. By me wearing this shirt, it was though I had my own personal cheering section. I passed so many people who would give me a thumbs up or would say “you are doing great, keep it up”. I heard “Go NoBo’s”. The encouragement went on for miles. Towards the end of my run, I guess that people could see me struggling and the encouragement just got stronger. I can honestly say that those strangers that I passed on the trail inspired me so much. It was the coolest experience ever! I just had to share."
