Train for a Race to Keep Fit When It’s Chilly
Wilmington, NC has a pretty mild winter, so on all but the worst days, it’s warm enough to get outside and go for a run. One of the best incentives to get out there and run is to train for a race. There are a lot of local 5K races coming up in the colder months, and most of them are for a good cause.
