December 7th Prompt
Prompt: Community. Where have you discovered community, online or otherwise, in 2010?
I have several "communities" of trail runners that I like to hang out with.
My stylized illustration:
My little running communities overlap each other, in fact may be composed of the same peeps.
"Western Reserve" is just kind of a broad term, to characterize the Northern Ohio/Cleveland/Akron area of trail runners.
Another group would be the "Mohican" Gang. These are the folks who come to together, who may not actually run the Mohican Trail Race, but love to train in the State Forrest and Park. Mo Runners compromise of alot of Western Reserve and Central Ohio Runners.
Central Ohio Trail Runners is another group of community I would like to get to know better. The members of this loosely organized group are finding there are more and more folks interested in running trails around the Columbus area.
NEO Trail is what I consider my main club, organized out of the Northern Eastern Ohio area, we have members in Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.
Through NEO Trail I met and became a member of the Virginia Happy Trails Running Club. Boy, these are a great group of people I look forward to meeting more of.
The West Virginia Mountain Trail Runners Group may be a bit more isolated than meshing with most of the Buckeye State, but the members of it, from WV, Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania, many belong in VHTRC.
What community would you like to join, create or more deeply connect with in 2011?
I would like to get to know more folks from both VHTRC and the Central Ohio Trail runners.
