David Hylton Helped Create the Online Running Community

Today I’m joining David Hylton, the co-founder of #runchat, for a few easy miles.

David Hylton is a co-founder of #runchat

While David is a founding father of arguably the largest online running community, there is nothing like taking those relationships that have been created via social media and bringing them into the real world.

And as #runchat continues to grow, there will continue to be more and more opportunities for those interactions to take place. 

While we obviously talked a lot about #runchat today, that wasn’t the only topic of conversation. Here are some of the other highlights of our chat:

  • A reality check before his wedding caused him to start running
  • Twitter chats while watching The Biggest Loser planted the seed for starting #runchat
  • The organic growth of #runchat
  • Is there an Official Run Chat race in the future?
  • How can members of the Run Chat community give back to help the Run Chat entity continue to grow
  • Taking the long view when it comes to your running goals

If you haven’t already connected with David, you really should. You can find him on twitter @runningbecause.

And if you’re not already a member of the run chat community, you can learn more at therunchat.com, you can find them on twitter @therunchat, and find them on Facebook as well.

And just a reminder, #runchat takes place every Sunday evening. 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month starts at 10pm EST, 2nd and 4th start at 8 pm EST.

Join The Tribe!

There’s always room for more members of the tribe!

Both the Facebook group and the email group provide opportunities that can’t be found anywhere else.

The Facebook group is still small, but it is a great way to connect with fellow runners and foster community amongst like minded individuals. The email group is THE way to stay up to date about future guests on the show, as well as getting some other freebies and offers that aren’t available to anyone else.

If you’ve got questions about either/both, just let me know!
