Peer pressure is a thing, we get it. Stop asking, we're not jumping off that fricken bridge.

It's the only way to figure out who you go into the woods with.

I only run when I'm being chased. I guess they are running too, though, in trying to catch me. I guess this checks out.

It's almost like people with common interests sometimes become friends...

fark my knees, I don't run because running sucks balls.

Biking is a million times more fun, more technically challenging, plus you get more breeze.

This also checks out when drinking.

What about self-selection bias? People who run meet and befriend people who run, and their other friends share at least some interests and some of them might be willing to join for an event every now and again.

It's a thing for children, sure. Not for adults.

To be fair, if my friends were running, it because something is chasing them. So I would probably be running too.

Who needs friends to inspire you to run when you can just be chased by your own demons?

Well I always knew runners were basically fitness nazis.

Do you know what I like?  People who post their daily runs on Facebook.  I am impressed with their 30 minute run at a 12:00/mile pace!

Another nice argument for your position:

I do believe Hugo Boss makes jogging shorts and so on so it might just be true.

I run 20-30 miles a week. I looked into joining one of those running groups, but those psychos are out at like 6 in the morning.

Alright, you and I are going to have an Old Man Race.   Not the most exciting thing to watch for spectators...
