One of the attractions that running has for me is the fact that it’s a pursuit that I can do alone. I lace up my running shoes, head out the door and run to my heart’s content. There's no need to call up friends, family or other runners to see if they can join me.
That’s how I started running. Recently though, my perspective’s changed a bit.
Since I started running with Orange County Trail Runners a few months ago, I’ve found and learned to appreciate the joy of running with others. I’m sure most of you can relate, but I'd like to point you in the direction of this well-articulated blog entry by one of my OCTR mates, Nattie. I think it hits the spot.
