Plea for Pace Leaders!

You get the Weekly Runner, you hear about the pasta parties...but are you one of those runners who can't seem to find a group to run with in the Charlotte Running Club? It's time for you to toe up to the line and take the lead. The Charlotte Running Club is looking for people to lead pace groups, especially in the 9:00-10:00 per mile range. What is required of you? That's the easiet part! All you need to do is let us know when you run, where you run and how far you run and be willing to accept some company. Then, we come to you. You don't have to change your schedule, or place. If you run every Monday at the corner of say, Providence and Fairview, just let us know. We'll post it in the newsletter and put it on our website. Maybe you'll get 10 runners, maybe it will just be you and your iPod. But, we want to have as many options as we can for our 200 plus members. If you're interested, don't delay. Email us at run.charlotte@gmail.com


  1. i can give testimony to this...

    i used to run by myself with my ipod. aaron and jay and caitlin encouraged me to start a group run, but i said i couldn't since "i'm not really a runner."

    they said, "do you run on certain days?"
    "at certain times?"
    "from a certain place?"

    and so they posted that day, time, and place... along with my pace... in the newsletter.

    the first couple of weeks i got no one. still me and my ipod. but then i got one, then two, then three runners to join me... i don't even know where my ipod is anymore!

    and, to top it off... though it wasn't our intention... our little group is getting faster. we're better together than apart!

    if i can start a group, anyone can.

  2. YAY! Thanks Lauren! I'm so glad that it has worked out for you! You have done a GREAT job and you make yummy stuffed eggplant. :o)
