I live downtown and don't have a car so a little restricted in terms of groups to join. But I have gone for runs along Dallas Rd, the park and am planning to hit the Songhees (sp?) path soon.
I've seen the run clinics around but I have a slight mental block against paying for access to a running group, save athletic clubs (but there doesn't seem to be any close to where I live, according to Front Runners where I did enquire a few months ago.) I understand these clinics offer info and programmes but I've been running for many years and done a lot of races of all distances so I don't feel I need the info part as much - more the social. However, I did find out that MEC hosts free runs once a week and on Saturdays and I'll be joining them next week actually. I found it strange that the guy at Front Runners didn't mention these when I enquired.
I'm entered for the TC 10k in April. Any particular races you would recommend coming up in the next couple of months?
Great to hear from you. It'll be nice to keep in touch. Maybe even run into one another during a race (pardon the obvious pun ;-)

I moved to Victoria last year from sunny South Africa. I used to be very active there and ran everything from 10km - marathons. Since moving here though I have found it difficult to sustain the running. I was spoilt with a wonderful running friend and club and suddenly having to hit the road on my own was tough.
I'd like to get back into it and lose the few kilos gained due to the inactivity.
