A Message From MaMa Snail ...

Charlotte, Mary & Justina The group is now over 10 years old. I am one of the original Snails and a "back of the pack" runner at best. I have years and years of experience but you'd never know it! The Snails are all across the board with agendas. We somewhat train for a fall marathon however there are many, many other goals within the group. We've become the biggest Baltimore-based trail and ultra-marathon running group. However, that being said, we have some folks, like me, who have NO desire to ever run any further than a marathon a year and on solid footing only.

We meet as a group every Saturday at 7:00 (8:00am in winter) for a group run. In actuality after we start, the group splinters into little groups and people do whatever is on their agenda for the day. I typically run with 3 to 4 other women who are my speed and on days they want to go longer they do and I just peel off.

We all meet up for breakfast after the runs. It's a WONDERFUL group of people. Knowing the Snails has brought me more friendships than I can ever count. It's a group of caring people all sharing the same passion for just being outside and running for health and happiness.

We look forward to meeting you someday. Don't be shy. The group isn't for everyone but I can't think of a better group to hang with on Saturday mornings.

We charge nothing. My husband is the unofficial coach. His fall marathon schedule is now out on our website with locations of where we'll be every Saturday. Hope to see you sometime.
