On last week’s podcast, we shared a chapter from the first section of Becoming a Sustainable Runner, by Tina Muir and Zoë Rom. In this episode, we’re highlighting the second section, “Sustain Your Running Community.”

This chapter, “Find Your Place,” explores the ways in which connecting with others can enrich our lives as runners. Even if you’ve never had any desire to run with a group, you may change your mind after hearing Tina and Zoë’s thoughts. And if you still prefer to run alone, joining an online community can enhance your running experience immeasurably. A good place to start is our own #Running4Real Superstars community on Facebook.

Over 10 years ago, the 2before co-founders were part of a team from the New Zealand Plant and Food Research Institute that first discovered that blackcurrants have benefits for exercise. 2before is a natural, simple and delicious way to boost your pre-workout nutrition, so you can get more out of the work you put in.
