Talk to your neighbors. Sometimes the people we're looking to meet are in our own backyards. Have you reached out to your neighbors lately?
If you see your neighbor working in the yard, walk over and offer to help. Or make a little extra soup or an extra dozen cookies and walk them to the family down the street.
By extending yourself just a little, you might meet some wonderful new friends within a short walk of your home. Wherever you happen to be — in line at the post office, at the grocery store, or at a concert, start a conversation with someone around you.
Have a few conversation starters handy so you always have something to say to kick off a conversation. Yes, this might be uncomfortable at first, but if the other person is friendly and responsive, it might be the beginning of an interesting connection.
Ron and I have a beautiful white collie named Scotch. He's unusual because he's white collies are usually black and tanand he really is a handsome guy. When we take him on a walk, we get stopped by nearly everyone we pass. Taking your dog for a walk gives new people a reason to stop and talk to you. Other dogs will be naturally curious and drag their owners over to say hello in doggie language. If there's a dog park in your community, take a ball or frisbee and have an outing with your pet.
The odds are good you'll meet people that are fellow dog lovers. Sit at community tables. Find restaurants that have community dinner tables or bar tables. Rather than isolating yourself at a two-top, sit at the community table and meet new people seated nearby. Reach out on Facebook or other social media. I reached out to a few and have met up for coffee. Through Facebook, you may discover some old friends or acquaintances that you didn't know lived nearby. Host your own casual dinner party or open house and invite your neighbors, people from work, or acquaintances you've bumped into along the way.

Invite them to bring a friend along so you expand your potential circle of new connections. You don't have to do anything elaborate. Make a pot of soup or order a few pizzas.
The point is to simply bring people together and expand your circles. Find a business association.
Are there groups or associations related to your career? Research local business events and attend them so you can network professionally and personally.
Go to a cultural event. Become an annual member of the symphony, local theater, or ballet. Attend the performances as well as the fundraising and member events. Strike up conversations with other attendees who are there because they appreciate the arts just like you. If you prefer visual art, visit your local galleries, talk with the owners or managers, and discuss the art with other guests.
One of the best ways to meet people is in a class at the gym. But if classes aren't your thing, spend time in the weight room when it's busy so you can converse with other gym rats.
If there's a cafe or juice bar at your gym, hang out for a bit after your workout and connect with other members.
If you have a couple of friends or acquaintances who have a larger circle of friends, ask them to introduce you to new people. If you've moved to a new city like I have, maybe your existing friends know people in your new city. Ask them to make an email connection and then follow up yourself to suggest a get-together.
Participate in Toastmasters or another speaking club. Public speaking isn't fun for most people, but when you're thrown in a setting where everyone shares the same fears and learning curve, it can quickly break the ice.
Speaking clubs not only give you the confidence to make presentations, but they also give you the chance to meet a variety of new and interesting people. Go on a wine or beer tour. I live in a city with dozens of local breweries, and brew tours are common occurrences here. If you have wineries nearby or even restaurants that offer wine tastings, join in the fun and meet other connoisseurs. Beer, wine, and socializing always seem to pair well together. Take a dance class. Ballroom dancing is a great way to get up close and personal with potential new friends or romantic partners.
But you don't have to stick with ballroom dance. Take a jazz class, Zumba, or Salsa dancing. It's great exercise, and you'll meet fun people who enjoy kicking up their heels. Find a church or religious community.
If you're a spiritual person or have a strong faith, your church, synagogue or other religious community is the perfect place to meet supportive, like-minded friends. Go to seminars, book signings, or speaking events. Look in your local community guide to see what happenings and events are coming up in your area. Attend some of these events and try to sit next to someone who might be looking for a new friend too. Hang out at a jazz or music club. Do you enjoy jazz or some other music genre that works well in a smaller venue and allows for conversation?
Find a cool, low key club where you can listen to great music and start up an interesting conversation. Take your book or computer to a coffee house. When I start to feel house-bound working from home, I go to a local Starbucks or indie coffee house to work. It's easy to keep your head down in your computer or book, but look up every now and then and survey the landscape.
Strike up a conversation with the person at the table next to you. You never know who you might meet. Hang out at the local museum. Get thee to a museum! Do you like art? Most cities have one or several museums devoted to something that interests you.
You'll have no shortage of things to talk about if you chat it up with another museum-goer.
The Annual Rotary Club of Shepherdstown Charity Ball
In DecemberI ran a PR of 2: After taking some time to meet local runners, coaches, and training groups, Kathy and Run Boulder Athletic Club seemed to be the perfect fit for me to accomplish my goals. The main goal for the next two years will be to qualify, and represent Hungary in the Tokyo Olympics. After having foot surgery for some ruptured tendons ingoing through a lot of PT and trying to go it alone I decided it was time seek out a new group and coach. Kathy's name always came up amongst the athlete circles and I contacted her last year and so far it's been one of the best decisions I've made in a long time.
I'm already seeing progress in my races and workouts and have even PR'ed in some at altitude. I feel like on days where I have bad workouts she makes me feel like it's ok to cut the cord sometimes when in the past I've been use to pushing too hard right into injury. I enjoy her dynamic approach and it has been helping me tremendously after having some form issues from the previous surgery.
I'm excited to bust out some new PRs and replace my 2: Kyle Mena My wife and I moved to Boulder in March of from Portage, Michigan looking for a change of scenery and wanting to take our running to the next level.
For me, I was just coming out of a slump. I was unmotivated and lost with my running and have been on and off since graduating from collage in Thinking I wasn't fast enough or good enough, I took a chance and emailed Kathy asking about training and her group. That was one of the best things I could have ever done! Kathy was warm with her response and invited me out to jump into a couple workouts to see if we were a good fit together. Needless to say, I felt a connection immediately to her and the group.
Kathy has been nothing but great and I have found that spark I was missing for so long. I am enjoying everything about training and I cannot wait to see where I can go! Since moving to Colorado, she remained largely coachles until a friend told her about Kathy's group.
