    Suggestions so far:

    From Barefoot YOW:



    - a bunch

    - a gaggle

    - a herd

    - a chatter

    - an arsensal

    - nut house

    - a pod

    From pbarker:

    A pack of persistence hunters

    From ATL Oso:



    A pride (like lions)

    A murder (like crows)

    A march (because we march to our own drummer...?)

    A sneak (because you will never hear us coming)

    O.K. one more...



    A Freedom.



    pbarker - I also like Pack.

    And from Yours truely:



    A Yard.



    You know, just a few feet.

    I vote for 'pitter patter'.  

    I vote for 'pitter patter'. It has nice imagery too. Kids automatically use the natural running form.

    It's kind of funny, a couple

    It's kind of funny, a couple of my running partners (all shod but I am working on them), always comment on how they love the 'pitter patter' sound my feet make as I run along. I keep telling them, Sshhhh, I am in ninja mode, your not suppose to hear me!!!! :bigsmile:

    I like pitter patter too. Or

    I like pitter patter too. Or a "flight." "Pitter patter" is so cute and disarming, even though BFers can run really fast! Oh wait, I know. We're a "sneak"! :)



    Though according to the road commentary I keep getting from the Wannbe Lances around here, I'm a "road hazard." (Or is that "distraction" since female cyclists never, ever comment?)

    It also opens up the option of calling us "sneakers"... gotta like the irony.

    A pad...as in footpad, an old term for a thief, because he sneaks along.

    An instep...cause we run in step with each other. Llook! There goes another instep of those BFR's!"
