SHARING A JOURNEY MAKES IT SO MUCH EASIER

Posted on March 22, 2013

Yesterday I announced that I was giving away 100 free memberships to my Running 101 program.  The response I got on the first day was amazing.  There are so many people out there who want to run, but just need a little help.

They don’t know it yet, but I have already picked my first four winners.  Their stories really spoke to me.  These are people who want to run, and will be able to run.  They need is a push in the right direction.  I am excited to be able to lend this assistance.

What is just as exciting is something they will receive, but which will not come from me.  These four students will be part of a 100 person group.  They will start at the same time, and share similar experiences.  Most importantly, they will have each other for support.  Once the group gets started, I am going to do my best to introduce them all, and encourage them to communicate with each other thru my social media outlets.  This is not required, but I am hopeful that most of them will take part in the discussion.

Why do I want them to know their fellow students?  Learning to run for the first time can be challenging.  There are times when you may feel like it is impossible, and this may make you want to quit.   Fortunately there is something incredibly helpful about knowing that you are not alone.  Having people to share your trials and tribulations can often be the difference between success and failure.  Knowing that you are not the only one struggling with a particular workout makes all the difference.

Between the group support, and my coaching, these 100 people will have the best chance to discover just how great running can be.   It is my sincere hope that all of the participants graduate from the program, and become regular runners.  That is why I am doing this in the first place.

I am so excited to have the first four students selected, and look forward to hearing from the next 96 participants.  Running is too good to keep to myself.  I hope I get to share it with you.

I AM LOOKING FOR 100 FUTURE RUNNERS

Posted on March 21, 2013

I love teaching people how to run.  I created my website so I could reach as many people as possible.

I am trying to spread the word about my free and paid programs. To this end, I am going to be giving away 100 memberships to my Running 101 program.

Running 101 is a program that gives the non runner everything they need to successfully learn how to run 5k nonstop in approximately 15 weeks.  No experience or fitness is required.  I will give you everything you need to succeed.  All you need to do is to show up.

The programs I am giving away include personal weekly coaching (via email) with yours truly.  Thru these emails, I will do my very best to guide you to success.  Normally I charge $200 for this type of program.

To have a chance to win a free membership, all you have to do is send me an email telling me why you want to learn how to run.  It does not have to be long (please keep it under 500 words), but it does need to explain why you are interested.

The 100 most compelling entries will receive free memberships .  If you are interested, please email me (100runners@bradgansberg.com) no later than April 17Th.

The program will start on April 22nd, and the graduation run is tentatively scheduled for July 28.

Do I ask anything in return?  All I ask is that if you like the program, you consider helping to spread the word to people who might find it interesting.  That’s it.  If you hate it, you can quit anytime, no questions asked.

So, all that being said, are you interested in learning how to run?
