Welcome to this new MeetUp group for Austin runners. If you are looking for some friends to hold you accountable to those morning runs - then this is the group for you! During the week, we will run a 6 or 9 mile loop along the river. Typical pacing is around 8:45 min/mile pace, maybe a little slower, maybe a little faster depending on how much coffee, subject matter chat, or what we did the night before!
I travel for work quite a bit, so I will try to manage the group effectively. If there are others who want to host events when they are not scheduled (because I am traveling), feel free to contact me and add yourself as a host.
On weekends, I will use the group to organize longer runs, sometimes Trail, sometimes not, but looking to get 10-20 mile runs on the weekend. Ultimately, it would be great to find a group of 5-10 runners who meet on a somewhat consistent basis (given travel schedules, etc) for runs. I am a recent transplant from Minneapolis, MN so looking to make new friends and hold myself accountable to getting the miles in me as I prep for a big Ultra in October 2020.
Thanks - looking forward to the meetup and running.
