I run with the Bolingbrook/Naperville team world vision group, we have about 25 people who come every Saturday for the long runs, but about 50 in the group total. I hadn't run with a group before except at the YMCA training for a 10k. I love it. My pace is about an 11/12 min mile.

Hope your training goes well. Do you run with a group?

There were about 100 people at Busse Woods for the CARA training run this Saturday. There are 2 site coordinators and a large training staff who act as pace leaders for groups running from 7 minute miles all the way to 12 minute miles. I joined the 11 minute mile group. There are 6 in our group. CARA furnishes gator-ade and water at various locations along the running path. We ran a bit over the scheduled 6 miles, and our pace was closer to 10:30, but I found it quite enjoyable running with a group, something I've not done before.

The Summer Marathon Training program hosted by the Chicago Area Runners Association kicks off this coming weekend with the first long run. I've signed up for this years training and will be running with the Schaumburg group in Busse Woods Forest Preserve. The first run is a 6 miler.
I'm looking forward to a great summer of training.
