I just wanted to first apologize for all the new meetups that I posted and they all got emailed to you. When the former organizer handed the position over to me, all our runs and races got deleted from the board. So, if you RSVP'D to any of our runs you are going to have to redo your RSVP. Sorry about the inconvenience.
I wasn't aware of this until I took over as organizer, but the Meetup.com site is not free. They charge us for providing our group an awesome website and way to stay connected. Because of this service, they charge our group $19 each month. If you are willing and able to contribute any increment of money to keep our group up and running, it is greatly appreciated. I made it super easy to contribute to our group and put a link to pay your due on-line.
Running is definitely a social thing. I never ran in a group before and now am addicted to the social nature of running. Hope to see you soon!
