Meet up, suit up.
Spring is the perfect season to find new running friends. Head to your local running store or area races to find like-minded people to run with. Having a training group helps build your confidence and makes the miles go by a lot faster.
Have plans to run a fall half or full marathon? Spring is the right time to try out a new model of shoe. Head to your local New Balance store to find a model that works well for you. Once you do, buy a few for your training cycle.
Make sure you have the spring/summer clothing you need. Stock up on moisture-wicking items, including socks to avoid chafing and blisters. Light-colored hats and sunglasses will also help as the days get longer.
