Last night I went to my very first group run. Charm City Run was hosting a run in remembrance of the Boston Marathon bombings last Monday. I debated whether or not to go for a few days but had no excuse not to go. I knew it would be worth it, I was just nervous about running with other people.
I got to the store about 30 minutes early in case there was traffic or I got lost. Since neither happened I just talked with some either people while we waited for the run to start. I would love to know how many people ended up coming up tonight. It was so crowded!
We started the run right after 6:30, leaving from the McHenry Row store. We headed over to the Harbor, turned around and came back to the store. The run was a little over thirty minutes long. Most people there were with friends so I ran by myself the whole time, just enjoying being surrounded by so many runners.
I am so glad that I went! I am actually hoping to go to some of the other group runs at Charm City Run before the semester is over.
