One of the biggest challenges of running a half-marathon is getting and staying motivated.
Working out on your own and changing your diet plan alone can make things that much more difficult.
That's why Amber wanted to utilize different types of group training to keep herself going and stay on track for her first half-marathon.
What Group Training Has Amber Been Doing?
One of Amber's goals while training for the half-marathon was to shift from doing sprint-centric activities to more long distance activities.
As a long time soccer player, a sport that bridges the gap between activities with short bursts and ones that require long distance strength and endurance, Amber was able to use that experience to start training specifically for the half-marathon.
