Quick Running Tip Tuesday - #Runchat (5.8.12)

I've talked here often about the encouragement that exists within the running community.  It was actually a surprising find. 

Runners just like to encourage other runners. 

Runners also like to talk to other runners about running.  I have often found myself engrossed in conversations at Starbucks, church, at the office, the mall, Road Runners (where I buy most of my running gear), or just about anywhere about running.  The funny thing is, I don't want the conversation to end. 

Runners like to talk to other runners about running. 

If you're a runner... and you like encouragement... and you like to talk about running... and you have a Twitter account... Then you should be joining us for #runchat on Sunday nights. 

It's a free, twitter-based chat that happens on the second and fourth Sunday nights at 8pm EDT every month.  If you search within Twitter for the hashtag #runchat, you'll find us.  A couple of my buddies Scott and David ask running-related questions and we chime in with ideas, suggestions, experiences, etc.  Then the conversation begins!  We talk about everything and anything running related... gear... training... races... successes... failures... struggles... injuries... you name it!  Scott and David have even lined up some sweet give-aways to help spice up the chat a bit! 

It's great!
And it's free!
All you have to do is join us! 

If you want some more information:
Here is #runchat on the web...
Here is #runchat on facebook...
Or you can just check out #runchat on twitter... 

Also... those of us who are regular also include #runchat in with our running-related tweets throughout the week so that we can keep up with each other between chat sessions!  It's a great community!

Join us!
Keep running friends!
