What do you hope to get from this meetup?

Meet fellow enthusiasts for early morning or late evening runs, especially on Saturdays.

How did you find us?

Colleague forwarded "meetup" link after hearing me complain about not having anyone to run/train with in the early a.m.

When are you usually free to run?

Early mornings on Tues, Thurs & Saturday. Most evenings after 8pm (I love running in the dark by headlamp.)

What trail experience do you have?

I run in Watchung a few times a month. I ran (suffered through) two 50k trail ultras in 2014 - Bear Mountain (NY) and Marin Headlands (California).

What is your comfort zone as far as distance and pace? (for pace list your average flat terrain road pace so we have a consistent benchmark)

Flat road (or treadmill): between 7 and 8 min/mile; On Trail (like in Watchung): between 8 and 9 min/mile Distance: up to 15 miles at above paces


My wife and I and our 4 kids live in New Providence about a mile from Watchung. Haven't run much since high school cross country, but ran a few Spartan Races and 50k's over the last few years. I'm training for the New York Marathon in November.
