Most of the status updates I see from friends on Facebook are rather boring. “Sitting on the patio watching the birds” or “I hate cleaning the house.” Which is why I rarely post any status updates of my own. But Facebook is good for at least one thing – keeping track of friend’s runs and races. I really do enjoying seeing posts like “Ran a PR in the 5k today” or “Did 5 miles before it got too hot today.” I especially like reading a post from someone who I know is not really a runner but is starting to get into it. When I read “Yeah! Ran 2 miles without walking!” I just have to post a comment of encouragement.
If you see posts about running take a moment to comment. The running community can always use more “friends”
