Hey runners! Looking for content to include in an article I am writing... Something along the lines of the most annoying experiences on a long run. Yes. Almost anything can become annoying at some point but what are some little things that are common to all runners?

Shes inspiring you that's good !! I love my early a.m running .. Starts the day off right

Jill, I wake up, I ask "Who needs coffee?" And the answer is always me! Now the new here is that my 17-year-old daughter Laurel, has crawled out of bed at 5:30 a.m. each day this week and demanded that I take her to the gym. So we've been doing planks and lifting a few weights and riding the spin machines ... after I have a cup of coffee, that is. :)

Wanted: Running Partner! Need motivation!!! lol I am a west sider and live in Ivywild. I do both road and trail but I am mainly looking to run from 4:15-5:15 on Tue/Thurs in Stratton Open Space near Cheyenne Mtn HS. I'm slower right now cause I've been slacking so, I think I'm around a 9-10 minute mile. I just want to run for fun, not training. Women preferably or a group of people would be cool too! I'll be at the UpaDowna.com Waldo hike this Sunday if anyone wants to meetup!

Hi Troy,
Welcome to the area. A group runs out of Trinity Brewing Co. located on Garden of the Gods Road at 6:00 pm Mondays. The longer route is an 8 mile run to Garden of the Gods and around the main loop.

Just wondering if there was groups that ran 7-10 miles daily or weekly new to the area and looking for a running group mostly everything I've found is 3 miles

Hi Pete,

You could try doing the Jack Quinn's Running Club: JQRC

They meet every Tuesday night around 6...part trail part road.

Most of the trails around here are too rocky for strollers. The Greenway Trail might work for you: Greenway Trail Map

Hi folks, new to the group.  I'm looking for a good (preferably trail) run to do with a double jogging stroller.  I get more time to run if I push the kids.  Thanks all, Pete
