Best Free Workout Motivation, July 2007
Wend your way through the streets of Beverly Hills—Wilshire to Rodeo, over to Crescent, and down Roxbury—but don’t bother bringing your wallet. This isn’t a shopping spree; it’s a weekly run for up to 300 people at a time. Leaders of theNike Run Club and NikeWomen Run Club direct the course and keep the pace. The idea behind the free workouts, which take place every Wednesday and Thursday at 6:30 p.m., is that camaraderie between runners and encouragement by athletes affiliated with the company will lead to improved times and endurance for anyone who can merely walk the course. » Niketown, 9560 Wilshire Blvd., Beverly Hills, 310-275-9998; NikeWomen, 189 The Grove Dr., Ste.
