How Runners Can Stay Social While Social Distancing

by | Apr 27, 2020 | Training

Over on MapMyRun, I’m writing a lot about navigating COVID19, social distancing, and running. A big part of that is that for the most part, running with friends is off the table right now… So, how can you stay social with your run crew when you’re not running? This may not be an issue if you were friends first and running buddies second, but a lot of us built our friendships on miles logged, and to suddenly not have that could be a friendship hurdle. So, I had some ideas!

Personal favorite idea: Zoom fitness training as a group! Both cost-effective and a good way to stay in touch with each other.

Right now, most personal trainers and yoga instructors are working remotely, so take advantage of that fact. Coordinate with a local gym or studio to host a private virtual ‘class’ for you and your run crew. Split the cost, or use this as a way to celebrate a birthday or other milestone by gifting it to your crew.
