Positive Mental Energy
The 2020s inspired me to create Positive Mental Energy (PME), a Brooklyn based running club for people to connect, explore and heal together.
At the start, I was looking to meet-up with other runners to combat a feeling of isolation caused by the first lockdown. I created the instagram page @positivementalenergy and designed run announcements to target people/businesses from my neighborhood. On the first run, I had four people show up–which was already more than expected. A few weeks later I was hosting two runs a week with over ten members each run. Since then, I’ve secured a partnership with Arc’teryx New York who sponsors our runs to equip our members through giveaways each month.
The result is a tight-knit community of runners who have become friends and who can rely on each other to maintain a healthy workout routine.
