This is a shout out to all the slower runners! The runners who sometimes describe themselves as “turtles”. The runners who are sometimes too nervous to come to a group run for fear of not being able to keep up.
We need you “turtles”! We need you to be brave and to show up! We need you to add diversity to our group runs, our running clubs, and our running communities. We know you’re out there, now come join us!
I’m currently part of an amazing group of runners, The Frankfort New Lenox Running Club, and I can honestly say that we have runners of all shapes, sizes and abilities.
However, the core of our group is in the 8:30 to 10:30 pace range. We NEED more runners to fill in the slots from 11:00 to Run/Walk. This helps our group accommodate new runners. Although we welcome runners of all paces and distances, apparently, we don’t have enough turtles. We have had complaints that more turtles are needed!
Are you a turtle? Do you live in the south suburbs of Chicago and need people with whom to run? If so, we NEED you! We have people in your pace range, we just need to develop that aspect of a group a bit more so that we have turtles at EVERY run we offer. And we run a lot. We run on MON, TUE, WED & THUR evenings and SAT & SUN mornings. One of those days can surely fit into your schedule, right? So come out and introduce yourself or feel free to email the F’N Running Club for more info at email@example.com.
Help us out. Please!
