Are you looking to get in better shape or train for races, while running with a nice group of people and connecting with nature? I moved from Boston, MA to Anchorage at the beginning of August 2012 and am eager to meet and get to know other people in and around Anchorage who love running. In Boston I ran with and organized trail runs for several Meetup groups while training for various races, including half marathons. I find that running with other people helps me stay more consistent and also encourages me to push myself harder. What I loved about some of the groups, with which I ran, was a strong sense of camaraderie that we shared. Sometimes we visited over brunch after a long weekend run or while getting a beer after a weekday evening run. Does this sound like the kind of running group experience you would like? If so, I envision this group to be similar. All levels are welcome!
