If one of your goals for 2013 is to exercise more, the Parkway Running Club's Jon Connor Resolution Run on January 1 is the perfect event for you.
Parkway Running Club's motto is "Nobody runs alone!" and it's a great way to get running in 2013 - with friends and new friends.
The event is free for everyone and the run starts at 9:30 a.m.
The run starts at the West Roxbury YMCA and runners have a choice of either a 3-or 5-mile route at a friendly pace. Breakfast snacks and coffee will be served afterwards back at the YMCA.
"If you choose to join or renew a membership with the Parkway Running Club, it’ll be the best 'first check' of a New Year you’ve ever written. Seriously," said Rachel Forsyth-Tuerck of the Parkway Running Club.
While the Jon Connor Resolution Run is free for everyone, you can also pay your dues at $40 per person and members get: regular group runs, support with long runs in preparation for the Boston Marathon, first dibs on the club bus to Hopkinton, professionally-coached track sessions in the summer, guest speakers, club social events (eat and runs, Thirsty Thursdays, pre- and post-marathon parties, and holiday party), and wicked cool folks to meet up with at local (and destination) races and events.
All abilities are welcome.
