This will be a cross post.
If you live in the NoVa or DMV area and want to take up running, there is a new Meetup.com group called BEGINNER RUNNER LADIES OF NOVA.
They are having their first practice run at Aurora HIlls Branch library. It is free to join the group. From what I understand, it will be run/walking.
"where we'll run together. We will be running/walking 3 miles, but if that's too long for you, you're welcome to join us for less!"Aurora Hills Branch Library I will be there if you want a friend/companion to talk to (I hate going places alone myself!). Best wishes! -SS
