I’m a runner from way back. These days, I usually run solo, but that’s mostly for flexibility and time management. I still enjoy running with a group or another person on occasion. It’s a great way to share an experience and to have good conversation (unless you’re actually racing).
Over the years, in fact, I’ve noticed that this kind of a shared physical activity can actually lend itself to thoughtful interactions or planning with other. Maybe that’s because of the lack of distraction, or because the framework is based on a common bond or practice.
Whatever the case, it seems like a fun thing to design. So, the question for this challenge is, “What is the ideal setup or model for a great run with another person or a group?” Here are other questions to consider.
- What is your desired experience?
- Is there a preferred time of day for this kind of experience?
- Does the conversation evolve organically or is it “planned”?
- What are possible constraints related to the experience?
