Help us plan runs that are best for you! What zip code do you live in? What times of day do you best like to run?

Zip code: 28277 I'm usually a morning runner

Tell your fellow runners more about yourself! How long have you been running or are you new to running? What are you looking for in a runners' meetup group?

I've been running for about 10 years, but have only gotten more serious about it in the last 3 or so. I've completed 5 marathons in the last 3 years and am excited to say that I'll be running Boston in April 2012. I'm looking for a group to do longer runs on the weekends with and perhaps some during the week as well. I'm also hoping to find a group to socialize with too. The group I ran with in Iowa used to joke that we run for bagels.

What area of Charlotte do you live/run? Where is your favorite place to run? What is you favorite distance to run (for training or racing)?

I live near the Ballentyne area and have only run in that area so far. (I've only been here for a week though!) I can't say that I have a favorite place to run yet. All runs have been from home so far. I enjoy mixing up my runs with trails, greenways, suburbia and urban areas...I just like to get out there and run. My primary distance for training/racing seems to be marathons recently. I've thrown in everything from 1K to 20K during marathon training just for some variety.

Do have any current running goals?

My primary goal is to re-qualify for Boston at the 2012 Boston Marathon.


I just moved to Charlotte from Des Moines, IA. I'm looking for a running group for both training and social benefits
