“About five months ago, my wife said she wanted to start running, so I started doing it with her, so it was something we could do together. Both of us are beginners and are having fun with it. We started with a few 5k’s and ran longer races to push ourselves and each other. We currently run against ourselves, which is fun and inspiring, but we are also looking to see how we compare to others our age with our skill sets. We don’t have any friends our age interested in running. She discovered the RUNColumbus Race Series and thought it would be fun to run with others that we can learn from and grow with. We’re looking forward to meeting a bunch of people with similar interests that we can run and have fun with.”
“I just ran my first half marathon, which I never dreamed of until a few months ago. I’d like to begin running more frequently and learn how to become a better runner, and who knows, maybe even have a full marathon in the future.
