Running through the winter is tough. It's cold out, the paths are covered in snow and ice, and the shorter hours of daylight force us to run in the dark. 

So, why get out of your warm bed to run in the winter? To put it simply, running in winter will make you a better runner. Oh, and let's not forget to mention the most important thing: It's more fun to run with friends! 

As the temperatures drop, our group runs are just heating up! Join our Winter Break Running Series and get ahead start on your training for the Blue Cross Broad Street Run and other spring races. Each Saturday in January we are meeting at 9AM in one of our shops:

1/5: PR Center City with the Sansom Street Donut Run!
1/12: PR University City
1/19: PR Glen Mills
1/26: PR Manayunk

All paces and faces are welcome to join - Team Philly Race Training membership not required! Check the Team Philly Runs website for more information about training for Broad Street and more in 2019 and how you can join.
