NU Bucket List – #29
Nike+ Run Club
Did you know that Nike Boston hosts free running workouts every week? That’s right, join them every Tuesday morning and Thursday evening if you need a little motivation to get in shape. Whether you’re a beginner looking for a way to start running or training for your next half marathon, there is something for everyone!
NRC Ready, Set, Go and Home Runs
Thursdays 6:34 pm at Nike Boston
You can usually spot the crowd all the way down Newbury Street. Over 20 Nike employees wear their bright yellow shirts, surrounded by regular NRC runners mingling and catching up.
For people who are just starting out, the Ready, Set, Go run is perfect. You can learn some good stretches, fine tune your form and take it easy on this 2 mile run.
For more experienced runners, choose between the 3 or 6 mile workouts, with designated Nike Pacers to follow that range from a 6 min/mile pace to the slowest pace your group needs. Follow them as they take you down the Charles River, around the Emerald Necklace or the nearest Boston neighborhood.
NRC Speed Run
Tuesdays at 6:34 am in Madison Park, behind IV
Yes, we know it’s early. But the energy here is an exhilarating way to start your day. This track workout is all about increasing your speed– you don’t have to worry about timing yourself, or keeping track of your laps!
NRC gives you an unforgettable running workout, with water and snacks, music to jam out to, “pacers” to guide your run and sometimes even the newest pair of shoes to try on! Most importantly, their running community is the most supportive and inspiring workout buddies anyone can ask for. Meet some new friends and get ready to sweat! Register here.
