Finding new friends isn’t always easy and comfortable. Sometimes, as much as you want to have friendships, you’d just rather curl up with a book than attend some social gathering or meet-up with a group of strangers.
Especially for introverts, it takes a lot of emotional energy to put yourself out there. But you can’t go belly up and remain a hermit forever. You have to find a way to connect with people.
“The social component is very important,” says John Honerkamp, expert coach for New York Road Runners. The bonds formed help to motivate and inform as you train and become a better runner.
Here at Movement Runners we foster team spirit. On race day, this can help you push through a wall or make it up a steep hill.
Check out one of our upcoming events and come and make some new friends!
