  • Running isn’t easy; Running far and long day after day definitely isn’t easy. It takes hard-work in the form of sweat, tired legs and sore muscles. We will be running workouts throughout the season and running a minimum of 20 minutes almost every day this season, often times much more than that. So please be prepared to work hard, and have fun!
