Running Dogs You Say?

The half marathon training group; to say the least, is motivated and eager to run.  It’s only week one and the runners have already started to bond as a team.  I jokingly described them as a pack of sled dogs before their first run…they were laughing, limbering up and doing their best to contain the energy they couldn’t wait to let loose on the open road. But, the more I thought about it my team of runners actually has more in common with their canine counterparts than just exuberance and an abundance of pent-up energy.
As teams they will both share hard times and strenuous work; and when the hard work is done they will rest and recover and even play together until they need to get back to work. 
From my vantage point as a coach I see all of this and more in my team of runners. Both of these teams start together; one bound together by harnesses, the other by goals -- they both endure the distance and overcome the obstacles together to ultimately arrive at their respective destinations as a team comprised of individuals.  Along the way they have learned to depend on one another to share and lighten the load, they speed up and slow down to accommodate each other’s strengths and weaknesses and they know intuitively how to support one another to bring out the best in each other. 
With either two legs or four, these teams run to arrive at a destination…and when they do arrive it goes without say that they earned their individual successes together… 
Run Strong; Inspire your team!
