Minneapolis is a great city for a lot of reasons, but one of the biggest reasons I love this city is that it is such a runner friendly place.
- Active.com ranks Minneapolis the #3 best running city in the US! Read it HERE
- Forbes gives Minneapolis runners props for being so tough! “Training for a distance race as far north as Minnesota can be tough, especially with its icy winters. But runners are hearty here, with than 50 miles of trail to keep your mind engaged as your body does the work. A slew of running groups help keep runners motivated during the freezing winters- and come springtime, the path around the Chain of Lakes is about as gorgeous as it gets.” Check out the whole list HERE
- Outside Magazine lauds Minneapolis/St. Paul as one its favorite running cities HERE
We also are very lucky to have a multitude of running clubs here. Of course, there’s the Calhoun Beach Running Club, which is near and dear to my heart. There’s Club Run, Minnesota RED, Lifetime Run, Running Room Run Club , MDRA, a run club associated with TC Running Company, a run club associated with Gear Running Store, a YMCA run club, a YWCA run club…seriously, the list goes on and on. I know that I’m missing a ton of them. But that’s the thing- there’s a run club for every type of runner here!
The t-shirts are super cozy. I’ve been throwing mine on after a run (and after a shower of course) nearly every day since I bought it. With that said, I have decided that these t-shirts from Gear are Friday’s Favorite Fit!
