Zo is het maar net:

Boeiende blog van Run Coach Nick, wiens blog we warm aanraden:
“Faster people can help you get faster. Surround yourself with experience, people who know about your sport, and who can teach you about it. This will make you a better – and smarter – runner“.
Dit principe gaat natuurlijk verder dan hardlopen, en we kunnen dat breder zien:
“Surround yourself with positive people – people who are here to help build you up, to teach you, to help you – not tear you down. These can be colleagues at work, friends, family members – anyone who is a great role model. And this works!“

It gives you positive reinforcement that you are on the right track and it also teaches you more about running and yourself than if you only run with people your own pace.
