L Street Running Club

If running the marathon has been something on your bucket list, then make this year the year you run the Boston Marathon.  Training for the marathon can be a daunting task, but joining a running club might just be the motivation you need.  The L Street Running Club kicks off their marathon training on Sunday, January 12th and runs for 4 months. The expert and inspirational runners  have developed a 14-week training schedule including fully-manned and supplied water stops, course monitors, and even gummy bears and jelly beans.  Running routes will cover the streets of South Boston, Boston, Milton, Quincy, Charlestown and twice along the actual marathon route.

Even if you’ve only run a little bit:
No need to be intimidated, the L Street Running Club is made up of 200 plus runners of all ages, abilities and backgrounds.  Meet at the L Street Bathhouse (Curley Recreation Center) M Street entrance bright and early at 8am.  Not only will you being doing something good for your body, but you might just meet some new friends too.

Cheer ’em on:
After the events of last year marathon, running club members are returning together to show each other, our city and the world the true heart and determination of Boston Strong runners. Many of the L Street Running Club are also training to run the marathon to raise money for charities like American Cancer Society, Leukemia and
Lymphoma Society, The South Boston Neighborhood House, Boston Medical Center, and Dana Farber.  So when you see them out running, cheer them on.  Words of encouragement go a long way – especially the last half-mile of a very long run!

    I was afraid to join LSRC because I thought I was too slow.  After much encouragement from the membership director I came down for my first run.  That was almost 6 years ago, so if you’ve everthought about it– don’t hesitate.  There really are runners at every pace whom you can join.  The club is very welcoming whether you’re a triathlete, sprinter, or weekend warrior (or anything in between!)
