I've been thinking for awhile now about joining one of the many local running clubs but never followed through, for a few reasons that include; I'm not a great people person and I'm really bad at small talk so the social aspect of it doesn't really interest me (maybe even scares me a little!). Although I can see the benefits to my long term running in a club, I'm currently training for a marathon and worry how club runs would/ could fit into my training (and foresee me training for events constantly in the near future as already thinking of my next challenge). I actually like running alone, I find it meditative not sure I want people ruining that. Its a running club! that would make me a club runner, they are fast and take running seriously, I just want the joy that running brings (and the medals from entering events )
What are your views on clubs? any pros or cons? have you tried clubs and left to do you own thing or joined a club and could never see yourself running alone ever again?
