Certain types of people are lone wolves when it comes to running. They prefer to, huff and puff in private. Then there are those who are driven by the pitter-patter of feet running along next to them. For some, group running satisfies a need to chitchat mid-run, and for others being surrounded by other people reminds them of being in a race and pushes them into that faster minute/mile group. No matter what motivates you, there are plenty of groups to join in Bend, on basically every day of the week. Now, there's no excuse for you not to hit the ground running.
