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.
