Zip code: 28277 I'm usually a morning runner
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.
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.
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
