WHAT PART OF RUNNING ARE THEY SOCIAL ABOUT? THEY SHARE FOR MOTIVATIONAL PURPOSES THEY DON’T BRAG. THEY SHARE. “I decided to share everything on FB when I realized that I have inspired many people I know to start running/walking. I was sharing it all on my personal profile but realized I was just cluttering up my page. I like sharing everything the most. THEY SHARE FOR INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES The best part is my races. I love being able to put into words how well I did that day. I get to go back and read it as well when Im feeling a little down.” “I enjoy sharing because not everyone is a 5-8 minute miler and sharing my times with others kind of helps me AND them to know its OK to run at their pace.” - 1girlgunningThursday, March 17, 2011
