Good Company

"The key is to keep company only with people who uplift you, whose presence calls forth your best."
- Epictetus

I came across this quote and wanted to share it.  I think its a good one to keep in mind as we take a look at our "inner circle" and ask ourselves a) whether the people in our lives fill this role and
b) if we uplift, inspire, and bring forth the best in the lives of those around us.

It also made me think of the supportive atmosphere that I see developing at our weekly Monday night group runs. Some of us are just discovering running while others are experienced racers...but everyone has worked together to create an uplifting environment where we can put forth our best. 

Good company for sure...

Join us on Monday nights at Local Sprouts Cafe, 649 Congress St. at 6p for our weekly group run through Portlands West End. 


  1. this is super cool - great turnout and vibes. and quote. how does it work with the varied paces? do you all run in a pack or do you kid of break up?

    1. Thanks. Everyone who's come out to run has brought a positive spirit and great vibes along with them making for a great group run. We tend to start out in a pack and break into pace groups pretty naturaly...but we never lose sight of each other and no one gets left behind.

      If you're ever in the area on a Monday night swing by!

      (BTW, your help in getting X-City off the ground is very, very much appreciated. Many thanks for everything)
