Today's topic is running solo vs. running with a group. I have always enjoyed running solo than with a group. When I ran with team groups in high school and college, I always ended up at the back and struggled to keep up. Running fast for long distances wasn't my strong suit, so now when I can decide things, I run by myself.
I'm an afternoon runner, and I like to run after work. I work 7-4 which gives me some calmer time at the gym before the rush hour gym-goers descend on the building. I can put my headphones in and just zone out. I'm not good at talking when I run, mostly because I'm processing things that happened that day, or I'm just in my own world. Between that and the headphones, I won't hear a single question directed towards me. I'm also not social when I run so one of my pet peeves is if someone next to me wants to talk. I consider the headphones as the international symbol of "I don't want to talk."
