We had 23 runners today for our Sunday morning group run! A diverse group of people (ages 10 through late 50s, all running abilities) ran a 10 mile loop including a couple of hill repeats. The early morning fog made for some beautiful scenery.
After our post-run stretching session, a group of 9 people went for brunch. We talked about gardening, identity theft, breast cancer, facebook, the Mt. Si relay, corn syrup, jelly beans, and football (I am sure I am missing a few).
We have the decaf group, and the black coffee group; we have the soy milk group and the half&half group; we have the vegetarians and the extra-side of sausage group. We have all sorts of occupations and professions.
But we all have one thing in common: we are all ready to go for a run at 8:00 AM on Sundays, regardless of the weather. And the thing is, as we get to know each other more, we realize that we are more alike than what we thought when we first met.
So, if you are looking for a group of people to run with, you know where and when to find us.
