Time to Hit the Road, This Saturday!

We've heard from a number of people interested in finding running partners and have been trying to figure out the best way to get folks matched up. It can be so rewarding to run with others (check this out if you haven't already) but finding the right running partners can sometimes be a little tricky if your pace, schedules, etc don't match up with those of your friends. One of the ideas that we've tossed around is organizing periodic group runs where people would be able to meet up with other runners, and we figure since the weather is finally nice, there's no time like the present!

It's kind of short notice for this one, but we'll be organizing a group run for this Saturday morning, 6/18. We'll plan on a 4 mile loop starting from the Lura Hoit Pool in Hampden at 8am. Our route will take us west on Western Ave. We'll take a left onto Mayo Road and will follow it to Kennebec Road where we'll take another left. We'll take another left on Main Rd S and then left on Western to take us back to the pool.

I'll be running at a pace somewhere around 10-11 min/miles or maybe a little slower, depending on how much I'm talking :), and we will have a group walking as well. All paces are welcome though - just wanted to give everyone an idea of what to expect :)

Leave a comment if you think you'll join us (and feel free to join us even if you don't comment). Hope to see you rain or shine on Saturday!
