Last night I got to run with a group that I hadn’t been able to run with in like forever. Thursday Night Social Run is a fun group that meets and runs each Thursday (coincidentally). Afterwards we have a little get together at a different establishment each week. The joints usually hook us up with drink and food specials. Last night we were at a cool TexMex joint Chiladas.
There are people of all levels from walkers on up to elite (seriously). I like it because running with them I usually go faster than my solo runs. It’s nice having others to pace with.
Afterwards we enjoyed some good food and drink. It was fun to catch up with all my running peeps. I also registered for a RACE! I’ll write more about it later, but a local 5k sent representatives to our group to offer us some discounts and incentives to register…so I did. It’ll be my first race since the Dopey Challenge, and that’s exciting times right there.
How bout you? Ever run with a social group? Ever pick up your pace when with others?
