I used to be into running and even completed a few half marathons! I found an amazing site called I Run 4 Michael on Facebook! You can sign up for a buddy on www.whoirun4.com ... There is probably a wait list...it took me 17 weeks to finally get matched, but the wait is worth it...but, you will eventually get signed up with a buddy who can't run for themselves, you get to develop a bond with your buddy and their family! I have had a buddy for over a year now and stopped running when life got too busy....but I decided to take it back up again and I'm doing it for my buddy as well as myself! She is great motivation for me and always enjoys hearing my stories about my runs, even if I didn't get far....on a few of my races, I asked for an extra medal to send to her, so we both would get something that we could remember it by! I can't wait to go through the C25k program and get running races again!!
