You’ve decided to run the 5K or 10K… or perhaps take on the half, but your motivation to practice isn’t quite where you’d like it to be. Relax! This is perfectly normal, especially when we can be so easily overwhelmed by our family and work responsibilities. Our sponsor, Hanson’s Running Shop, is ready to help! Join the Hanson’s gang every Wednesday at 6:30 PM for a FREE group run from their Utica store. All levels and abilities are welcome! For more information about training runs, check out the Hanson’s web site.
