Help Please

I am new to Summerfield, Florida and am looking for someone to work out with, run with or walk with or all the above. I am too young to be in an older community who don't get up and move and enjoy.

    VIsit a local 5k (don't run it if you are not prepared), and you will meet plenty of similarly motivated individuals, some of whom might live near you. Most 5ks will have information about local running clubs, if they are not in fact organized by them (they often are). I know there is a lot of beautiful running down that way, but a lot of running clubs are socially oriented, and may do a lot of drinking, as athletic clubs often do. If that's not your cup of tea, be aware there are lots of competent runners of all ages who are drawn to the tracks of local schools for workouts, where permitted, and where the activities are better monitored.

     

    If you get the chance, it's worth the drive down to the Croom Trail, where lots of dedicated runners enjoy miles of well padded running.
