The reason I stuck with TMIRCE is the sense of accomplishment after finishing an hour-long track workout and seeing my mile times get faster.
My favorite thing about TMIRCE is the community of awesome runners who always push me to go faster and motivate me to work harder, and make me wonder why I ever considered sitting on my couch instead.
The best running advice I've gotten is to keep pushing, you can go faster than you think.
Since joining TMIRCE, I've gotten over my fear of running in rain, snow, and sub-20 degree temperatures. And made great friends who have taught me that inclement weather can even be fun.
My favorite running accessories are the Nicki Minaj Pandora station and headphones - can't make left turns without them!
