For other codependent runners in DC...

For some, running is valuable time alone.  For others running requires a little more motivation to get out there.  I wanted to offer a few additional opportunities for group runs that you can participate in if you fall into that latter category.  This is by no means a complete list. There are dozens of running groups in the area and if these don't work for you, I encourage you to look online and find a group that meets at a time/location that works better for you.  Also, if you have recommendations of your own, please feel free to share. Runners are generally a friendly group, but it's always nice to see a familiar face.

Monday - 6:30pm Lululemon Logan Circle  
This is my favorite group run of the week.  It's a large group and goes out for a 3 or 6 mile run rain or shine.  Runners of all abilities participate, so you should be able to find someone at your pace, and there are definitely enough fast runners to make this a tempo run if you want to push it. Weather permitting we do abs for 10 minutes after the run and then head to Churchkey for drinks.  It's a very social group.  Most if not all of the lululemon stores offer a weekly run club if you live closer to one of the other locations.

Tuesday/Thursday - 7pm Pacer's Logan Circle  
Another evening run group (though if you look at their website they also offer early morning runs if you are more of a morning person).  Similar format to the lululemon Monday runs since it's led by the person who started the lulu run club.  3 and 6 mile run groups, abs, and usually drinks after the run.  One of my favorite features is they regularly bring in shoe reps so you can learn about and try running in some new shoes (6 miles can tell you a lot more about a pair of shoes than jogging across the store).
