Central Park Half Marathon - Casual runners

Hey all. Today I came across the "Central Park Half Marathon" and decided to sign up. This will be my first organized run. It was a bit of an impulse decision, but I know I'd like to keep up with running over the winter (even though I'd rather be inside eating nachos on the couch), and I'd also like to push myself to see if I can do this! I usually only run 2-4 miles at a time.

If anyone else is interested, I encourage you to sign up for it and join this meetup event (or let me know via message board or email). For now I'm going to stick to 2 runs a week, but I'll probably bring that to 3 come mid December. It would be great to have a few people to keep motivated with!

And remember, this is a casual running group. I'm not racing for time so I won't be going overboard with the training. Mainly this is to keep motivated and perhaps have a fun outing with some other members of the group. I encourage members of all fitness levels to post their own events as well. Hope to see you there!

Your soon-to-be-freezing organizer,
-Bryan

    Hey all, I wasn't expecting any new joiners for this event but it's great that you did. I have been training with Rebecca and we have a similar pace (10 min/mile), so we might run close to each other. I hadn't planned anything formal as far as the group goes, but if you want to meet up beforehand to say hi, I will post where I am once I get there. I plan on getting to the start around 7:30. You're also welcome to run with us if you have a similar pace... and if we finish around the same time we can always go for a bite to eat around the park. Either way, good luck to all!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
