"Join forces. While many runners embrace the solitude of running, numerous studies highlight the benefits of working out with others, including greater satisfaction with exercise, increased motivation to set and reach goals, and greater consistency." -- The Bliss List (http://www.runnersworld.com/running-tips/bliss-list), Runner's World
