New to DM and looking for friends

posted over 5 years ago | Report

Hi everyone!

I'm new to Daily Mile and fairly new to running. I participated in a beginning running program and ran my first 5K in May, but after that my motivation kind of petered out, so now I'm trying to get back in it. I think being here and having an online community will help keep me motivated and accountable, which is a huge thing for me.

I also recently moved to New York (City) and am looking for a running community/running group so that I can get advice on good routes to run outside so I'm not always stuck on a treadmill. Also, it's so much more fun running with friends :)

Any advice, motivation or friend requests (I'm shameless) would be greatly appreciated.

  • Way to go on your 5K and welcome to DM. I've found the people on this site to be fill of motivation. Maybe if you set a new goal for yourself that might help? I've found treadmills to be pretty boring and avoid them like planter facitis;)

  • Shameless FRs on daily mile are totally the norm! That's how we get many of our friends! A great way to keep motivation, I've found, is to sign up for another 5K...or HEYYYY, get crazy...maybe a 10K...(ooooooo!) It keeps your eyes on a prize and gives you something to look forward to (a new t-shirt!) You can look up the event on Dailly Mile and see who else is running in it and friend them (shamelessly, of course.) I usually message people first, letting them know how I found them, then send a FR right after (I don't wait for a response to my msg.)

    FR sent, Rayna. Welcome to DM!

  • FR sent, welcome to DM! People here are very nice and supportive, I think it makes all the difference. Depending on what kind of phone you have you can download certain apps that will sync up miles that you input throughout the day.
