Training with Team and Training was great. I always had a running buddy, and we shared a common goal. Since then, I've been pretty much on my own as everyone has settled back into their busy lives. I like myself and all, but telling myself about what I did over the weekend is getting old.
Running on your own all the time sucks. I don't mind it some of the time: actually I love it some of the time. To think, to be alone, to work things out. But on those long runs, especially, I want companionship.
I have scoured the Internet looking for groups. There is a Road Runners Club in Boulder I could try. Anyone have experience with the Road Runners? I could put an ad on Craigs List but then I run the risk of running with psychotic people who find running partners through Craigs List.
Here's my want add:
In search of running group to train for fall marathon. I am a disciplined person. I always show up. I usually do what I say I will do. I don't complain. I run in all weather. I run if I have my period. I even run with stomach upset and I try not to fart when I'm with other people. I would be a great addition to your group, be it mothers, drinkers, marathoners, professionals, you name it. Please have me.
How did you find the group/partner you run with? Am I just a loser for not having a group? I'm pretty nice, really.
