"My post is gonna sound like Matthew's, but I too can relate. When I was seventeen, I was a loner, had no real friends, didn't exercise, was ridiculously skinny, had mediocre grades in school (I flunked all my history/civics classes!),…"
"I don't mind the heat it's just that it's almost the only time I have that I can run. I've been able to run in the early afternoon recently, not too bad although a bit sweaty. The last run, a little under 5 miles I…"
"Glad to see I'm not the only one who runs at weird hours. I hate, hate, hate running in the heat, so I tend to go early in the morning or late at night. And oddly enough, I get my best times in when it's cold and raining. I don't know…"
"I started running last November and I've gotten up to 5 miles with sub 10 minute miles. I'm going to enter the Crescent City Classic 10K but not competitively. I just got finished running and at the 4 mile mark was averaging…"
"Sorry, I didn't intend for you to use Meetup as your only social running option; simply as a springboard to meet local runners and form your own, smaller running group.
It's basically just a way to connect with other runners, and meet…"
"Clinton and Jeff, thanks for the replies!I had considered using Meetup.com or something similar, but it seems that's more for big groups. With larger groups, the fitness level will vary, and I think everyone usually ends up adjusting to the…"
Ditto on what Clinton mentioned below. I am not sure where you live, but if it's in a larger urban area you will find it's easier to find people to run with. I used to live in D.C. and could easily find friends/co-workers…"
"Visit your local running store. See if they have any social runs going on. I live in the DFW Metroplex and a local store, Luke's Locker, has social runs every week.
You can also see if there are any running clubs locally. Try…"
Hey running men,Amateur runner here; just got into it a couple of years back. Want to start entering races; will hopefully enter my first 5K this year and then work my way up. Running solo is starting to get boring, though; and from the few times I have had company, I've found that I run a lot more competitively with other people around.So I want to find a running buddy. Nobody I know runs, though. Any suggestions on finding one? See More
This is a group for those of us who ascribe to the artistic crafts. Be that Photography, Painting, Drawing, Sculpture, Printmaking, or whatever it may be. Let's discuss what we're making, why we're making it.
"Thanks, Dana! That was very informative. International programs were never something I had really considered; my academic advisers never brought it up, so I just assumed I would apply only to domestic programs. But I know that times are tough right…"
"Thanks for your comments, Dana. I'm focusing on PhD programs, so right now I'm looking at UW-Seattle, UC San Diego, UC Irvine, and Johns Hopkins as my reaches, and then some safeties (haven't really decided on those yet.)"
"'Degenerates' was a generalization. There are exceptions among those who seek abortions. Probably no exceptions in the industry, though. How anybody who makes a living caving in babies skulls and sucking them out of wombs…"
"The best thing to do overall is simply discern how much of this GOTCHA is simply drummed up for their crusade, which at the least points towards 'doctored for their own side'. GOTCHA tactics are never going to go away, it's how…"
"It is only illegal to record parties without their knowledge in some states, not all. And let's look at parity, there are liberal "Gotcha" journalists who do this sort of thing all the time. Are we calling for their prosecution? No.…"
And this does relate to privilege, white or otherwise. If those who claim to lack privilege would do what you just did in your post, they would be much better off. Why people can't or won't look at the positives in their lives,…"
""Few wish to restrict guns solely to cops or the military or make the nation a gun free zone. I have no qualms of having guns for home defense or even fun, and I doubt anyone here would, either."
Yes, that's my point. Aussie style gun…"
"Which is why I said might. For Williams, it would had taken a good interview by a damn good - or just suspicious - interviewer with a damn masters in psychology to deny him the pistol. But from what I hear of everyone who knew him, and without…"
