We’ve built Team Long Run on a few ideas.
To begin with, we know running, done right, is hard. It’s a lot easier not to. We also know, however, that hard is good. Completing a difficult task is satisfying, joyful. Doing that every day is transformational.
In the words of one of our former athletes, running helps a kid “discover their own worth and capability.” Running is one of the few remaining activities available to kids that unfailingly reward consistency and sacrifice. Please re-read that last sentence and consider how important that is today. Running has always been a refiner’s fire; the hotter it burns, the purer the gold.
Running is healthy and natural. Given proper guidance and time, anyone can enjoy life-quality benefits from running… especially kids. Improved concentration, time-management, confidence, fitness, sleep, nutrition, and pure grit are just a few of the rewards a runner earns, and should happily expect.
Running provides a fool-proof opportunity to set goals and honestly assess progress.
The clock doesn’t lie.
