During the year, I joined a running group, this was for me the best way to ensure I would keep motivated. Towards the fall, my youngest son decided he wanted to try, so it was really fun to run with him. Ok, when I say run with him, I mean run way way way behind him, trust me we are not at the same speed for our running, but he would often circle back and join me.
We ran every sunday morning at 8H30, so it really took dedication for him to get up and get ready to run. We would also run on monday evenings and wednesday evenings with the Running room group.
