What is Nomad Running?
Nomad Running Society initially started based off of an idea that people who were "Nomad" had a sincere desire to better themselves. People who woke up, excited, in the early hours of the morning asking, "What can be done today, that will make the difference tomorrow?" When looking back on the original "nomads" it is important to have a definition and a bit of history. A nomad is defined as a person who has no fixed residence but moves from place to place, usually seasonally. Nomadic people usually moved place to place so that they could better provide for their livestock and seasonal crops (their product). Nomad Running Society is about that too. Our product is our running and we are in a constant search of ways to improve upon that product. Although some people may see this as a "grass is always greener" mentality, we at Nomad believe in watering our own grass.
Join us on this journey toward individual excellence and stay posted for updates to come. Thanks for reading. Get out there and water your own grass.
