It’s hard for me to believe, but it’s been 8 years since I started the Beacon Runners (AKA Marni’s Army). Back then, I was young and idealistic. More importantly, I didn’t have kids yet and had loads of free time. At the time, I had been running for about 4 years- I started running during my residency so I could get some exercise and stress relief. During my first year in practice here in NH, I got tired of just lecturing all my patients on the importance of exercise. I decided to put my money where my mouth was and actually get out there and exercise with my them. Every year the group has gotten bigger, and it’s wonderful to see familiar faces returning year after year. It’s great that eight years later we are still going strong, meeting every Tuesday and Saturday in April and May.
There was a great turnout tonight- how can you beat 80 degree weather and a great evening run at the beach?
