The Pandemic of COVID-19 has changed the world. For a long time, many people had to work from home, people were only leaving their homes when they had to, and a lot of people started taking advantage of the internet to get things done. People were using online running clubs before the pandemic. But with a larger emphasis now on social distancing, it has become even more of a blessing to those who love to run. No need to stay apart, wear masks and worry about putting yourself and your family at risk. So whether you just prefer to run alone, have a schedule that does not suit an in-person club, or are trying it out during the pandemic, here is a look at what it is and what the advantages are.
