Our group meets at 5:15am on Wed & Sat... there are other groups that meet at 6:30pm on the same day in a different location.
@ SEXY_WRITER:

Consider this:
Reach out to the group in your area and propose that they establish a morning running group. From my experience, they just want willing participants. For instance, I proposed a new running route that features more hills and varied terrain; my group leader & I are going to work on making this happen before September.

Once the leaders in your area check within their current group, they may find that there are others who would welcome the morning run. Maybe they evevn know a few 2nd shifters who'd love the opportunity, too.

@ Everyone:

Register on the national BGRUN! site and you will be able to find:

1. groups that are relatively close
2. organization leaders in your area who can fan the flame to group up and running in your area

You are not the only one in your area who wants a BGRUN! chapter... but, you might just be the SPARK to get one started.

P.S. You can also find groups in your area on FB and that may help, too.

I don't ever get to run with team either. But I have a pic of me at the Capital City Marathon and I stopped at their booth.

EXCUSES ARE FOR PEOPLE WHO DON'T WANT IT BAD ENOUGH!

There is a group here in Greensboro, NC. I work second shift and they run in the evenings when I am at work. I can pull up an article on the group which ran in the paper about a year ago. The girls rock!

I can simplify my life and lighten my burdens by deciding realistically what I want to do and what I have time to do. (~_^)
