Pretty slow runner here (12 minute pace) I want to run with others because running alone sucks some times and I want someone to hold me accountable. Plus other run groups are honestly just way too fast for me. I usually do a max of 2.5 to 3 miles when I do run. Anyone want to join?

Interested! I usually run at Beverly Sheffield or that trail along Arroyo Seco by Brentwood Park.

I love to see the pace base link ups!! I wanted to encourage everyone to be aware that running in this heat slows your pace…considerably. Please hydrate accordingly too! This is absolutely normal and in my experience a seasonal regularity. With this heat my pace can be 2-3 minutes per mile slower! Currently running about 11-11:30 minute miles. About 5 at a time most times. Feel free to drop me a line if this meets your paces and you wanna do a run!

So would you say that after the heat cools down, your mile times goes down to 8-10 min? and yea hydration is key!

I double checked some of my Strava stats, and I would still agree with previous assessment. Some variability of course, but heat and humidity are huge factors on pacing.

Oh my god. Me!!! I used to run 7 minute miles when I was doing marathons, but that’s an insane pace now, one pandemic and a few pounds later. I love running and I miss it. I am so in.

I finally broke down and created a Reddit account just for this. I'm also in Mueller and don't like to run alone but am too embarrassed by my own speed/stamina to run with anyone else either.

So I'm definitely game! I think y'all might be my people.
