Ever feel like your friends my be tuning out the details of your recent epic long run, which hello involved passing a random lost shoe, slipping on some ice and your first successful snot rocket?!
Yup that’s exactly why I started RunToTheFinish in the first place 10 years ago! You know before we had a place to share our workouts on Instagram or a place to connect on Facebook.
I’ve fallen in love with my Facebook community lately. Giving out great tips on fuel for sensitive stomachs or sharing their most recent bling achievements or celebrating amazing moments in running history F$$K ya.
In a sport that pushes our limits all the time, there’s nothing as wonderful as connecting with others who get it. So here are some Facebook pages you might enjoy!
And if you aren’t part of the RunToTheFinish fam on Facebook, get over there >>>
12 Top Facebook Running Pages
Over the years Facebook has changed from seeing just our friends to lots of business. Shoot RTTF is a business, but it’s driven by the desire for connection and community. I’ve found these running pages and communities are doing the same!
Since you’ll find much of the same on each, I won’t break them down other than to say these are places you can go to find:
- Motivation from quotes and stories
- Connection with other crazies like us
- Talk of all things running
- Reminders that you aren’t alone
All of this is worth having in your feed to keep you going when the moments get tough!
