Runblogger Runcast #12 – Building a Running Support Network: dailymile, Twitter and Local Running Clubs

Posted on February 23 2010

Episode #12 of the Runblogger Runcast discusses the building of a running support network.  Having others to support you as you train and race is essential, particularly on those days when you just don’t feel like heading out the door. In this show I discuss some of the sources of support that have worked well for me, namely my local running club (Granite State Racing Team), and two on-line social networks that I use regularly for running related support and discussion (dailymile and Twitter). If you have other suggestions for sources of running motivation and support, feel free to send me an e-mail or leave a comment – feedback is always appreciated!
