In April 2020, our first Love the Run started weeks after the pandemic lockdown. The program was a lifeline for many of us: In lieu of IRL races, we created our own virtual events. We lapped local tracks for one-mile time trials; we coordinated costumes for virtual relays; we chalked up sidewalk finish lines and broke toilet-paper tapes. And in the process, we felt connected, healthy, and strong—feelings that were rare during those days (and months).
More than two years later, we’re thrilled races + expos are back and as strong as ever. But we still Love the Run and the energy, community, and structure it brings to both our running and our lives.
So the AMR Team gathered ’round the white board, and gave the program a refresh. Love the Run: Fall 2022 still has all the features you already know and love—a training program, amazing swag, community-o-rama—but we added an additional component: a multi-level mileage challenge, complete with an AMR Tracker.
Our brand-new mileage challenge is, of course, built for all levels of runners and walkers. Beginning or getting-back-to it runners can follow our training program with a goal of 10 weekly miles. Runners who love to mix up their training can aim for 10 or 20 weekly miles: All kinds of activities are eligible for miles. More advanced runners—or those prepping for a fall half marathon or marathon—can set a goal of 20 or 30 weekly miles to ensure accountability.
As we Love the Run mile by mile this fall, we’ll encourage each other, thrive on the group momentum, participate in a live AMR Answers podcast (love!), and feel connected, healthy, and strong along the way. Can’t wait.
Program runs September 12-November 20, 2022.
