Purpose: The purpose of this group is to use running as an excuse to meet new people. We will have regular trail runs, coffee meetups, and short races all building up to the Good Life Halfsy November 3rd.
Who should join: This meetup is meant for beginning to intermediate level runners. All abilities are welcome, of course, but the goal is to create a non-intimidating environment where everyone is comfortable. If you are new to running and are unsure of how race registration works or have some general questions, feel free to message me.
New Member Survey: Please fill out the following survey so I can schedule meetups accordingly.
Location: I am based in Lincoln but have had many suggestions for trail runs and races in and around Omaha. A long-term goal of this group is to have events for races outside of Lincoln, and perhaps someday, out of state.
Training Advice: The purpose of trail runs and coffee meetups is for people to discuss/share training tips with others. I assume most of us are making stuff up as we go (maybe that's just me), but if you're interested in an actual program, I did find a free one from runner's world (link below). It is the UK edition though, so you'll have to run on the other side of the road!
Recommendations: Accurate RSVPs are appreciated. Last minute cancellations are fine, but please update your RSVP if you can't make a meetup. Communicating via meetup message is also very helpful.
Quick Note: Meeting strangers from the internet can be very intimidating, sometimes downright scary. One coffee visit or trail run will put your mind at ease and could potentially change your life. The purpose of meetup is not just to join groups, but to actually attend events!
Let's meet Saturday morning at 9 am for a short and easy trail run. It will be a great way to meet and socialize with other members of the group. I will be there around 8:45 am - we will plan on starting shortly after 9:00 am. Time to get serious about the Good Life Halfsy!
The Novartis Trailhead is just south of 84th and O st. There is also a parking lot next to the building (on the east side of 84th).
The Good Life Halfsy is Sunday, November 3rd at 8:30 am. Let's do it!
It does sell out every year, so don't put off registration too long. Information can be found at the following website:
