Any way the reason I like them now is we have a cool group. Why is it cool? Because I think people care about the group and we all have a mutual respect and fondness of running for fun. There is no competition during the group run. We are just looking to relax enjoy others company and go for a run.
Running with "The Group" is something I look forward to every week. I like seeing the different running gear people are wearing, the new shoe they are sporting or just hear stories about runs/races they did.
A great place to find organized group runs is at your local running store. Most stores will have the group run times and dates posted. If not ask I'm sure someone at a running store could point you in the right direction.
