  1. Haha I really love the way you write. I have to half disagree with you though on this one – I say half as I love running in a group as it makes me run harder and I’ve seen good progress with my pace etc. over the last few weeks. I’m also only half disagreeing with you as the groups I’ve joined aren’t running clubs as such but free groups like the Sweatshop Running Community and Magic Mile / Parkrun stuff, so it’s not too serious and everyone’s really friendly and welcoming. 🙂

  2. Sometimes I like my running group (not a team really); other times they are full of drama, slow me down, and are cliquey. Yuck.

    Park run is a great idea Tess, as is all the online stuff. I’m not against running clubs or support or anything of that kind.

    Miranda you wouldn’t like running with me, I’m a drama queen and slow!

    I’m not opposed to the idea of running clubs, and I would love if there was a Moms Run This Town chapter here. However, I would only want to do it on *my* terms, like once a week or once every two weeks, and it would have to be totally low stress (like so I don’t feel bad about being dead last). Also, I would have to like every person in the group and not want to bury any of them in the woods while we were out. This is why I run alone.
