The Prophet (SAW) said: “The relationship of a mumin to another mumin is like a building, one part of which supports others” (He intertwined his fingers). (Abu Musa (RA), Muslim, Vol. IVA, No. 2585. Also al-Bukhari. Vol. 8, No. 55)
As a runner/walker you know that a program that incorporates various distances, paces, and surfaces helps you perform your best. What you may not realize is that the same holds true with the company you keep—or don’t keep—on the run. If you run with a group it is guaranteed you’ll become a better runner. Obviously you’ll need to continue to put in a lot of hard work, but the benefits of training in a group environment are huge! Sure, there are times when running alone is preferred, but doing a majority of your runs with others has tremendous benefits.
