Running to live ... live to run
No pressure groups invite all to get off the couch and into shape
THE RUNNING COMMUNITY in Kershaw County is an active and vibrant one as evidenced by this group of runners who are part of the Camden Lugoff Runners and the Fitness Zone Runners clubs. Those runners holding up the 26.2 signs have completed a full marathon while those with 13.1 signs have run in and have completed a half-marathon.
Some people are born to run. Others get their calling to take to the streets in different ways.In the case of Camden’s Phil Elliott, administrator with the City of Camden Fire Department, a visit to his physician provided him an alternative to obeying doctor’s orders. For Heather Willits, who has been involved in the fitness business for some 20 years, running came as a way to use the free time she had on her hands after her daughter went off to college.Both found the roads to their liking and those paths led to their joining no pressure running groups: Willits with the Fitness Zone Runners and Elliott, the Camden /Lugoff Runners (CLR).
