Runners Connect

Miles in Martinsville is very excited to announce a new program with goals of introducing new people to the sport and providing a connection for development to the many dedicated runners in the community.

The program, to be known as “RUNNER’S CONNECT of MHC”, will present activities designed to bring together folks of like interest, in an effort to broaden the local running community.  The program will also serve as a source of information for experienced runners, newcomers, and for runners visiting the Martinsville-Henry County area.

A RUNNERS CONNECT of MHC link has been placed on the Miles in Martinsville website and is under development.   It will warehouse various types of pertinent information such as suggested run locations, beginner training plans, and more. 

Ashley Crouch has been named Running Coordinator for Miles in Martinsville and in that role, she will oversee the activities of this new undertaking.  She comes to the position uniquely qualified and knows of what she speaks.  Crouch began running just a few years ago in search of weight loss and better health.  She had quit smoking and immediately gained 30 pounds. She was happy about the not-smoking thing but depressed about the weight gain.

She changed her diet, joined a 30 day workout challenge, and got an old treadmill, and became a dedicated runner.  In a few short years she has run a broad array of races at distances from 1 mile to 100 miles.  She simply loves to run.

 

Looking for friends to run with?  New to running and want some company and suggestions?  Want to run a 5K but not sure how to go about it?  Ashley will plan, coordinate and announce group activities through a new Facebook page titled RUNNERS CONNECT of MHC.  Already in the works are Ladies Night Out runs, Pub Runs, and weekend longer runs.  Interested individuals can find details on Facebook at 

https://www.facebook.com/runnersconnectofmhc/

More to come.  Readers are encouraged to like the page and check in often.
