Friends, I have a confession to make.
I can hardly remember the last time I went for a run. Seriously. I think it was a few weeks ago, but before that there was a dry spell too. I just haven’t been in the mood but the crisp Fall air is starting to call my name. Fall is my favorite season for running. Fresh air, cool mornings, colorful trees and leaves crunching under my feet. I’m motivated to get back out there, but I don’t want to do it alone. I’d love for you to join me.
Last year I hosted The Balanced Life Run Club as I was preparing to run my first half-marathon post-baby. And it was so much fun. I’m not training for a race this year (yet) but I just want to get back into a regular routine and if there’s one thing I’ve learned, everything is better when done in community with others.
So I’m excited to announce the 2014 return of The Balanced Life Run Club!
Here are the details…
You + me + the encouraging, supportive community of Balanced Life beauties.
Runners, walkers….all levels welcome! Whether you run once a month or once a day, this group is for you.
An online run club designed to keep you motivated and active during the Fall season. A place for us to find community that is supportive, encouraging and uplifting as we try to find balance on our paths to health and fitness.
The Run Club will include weekly emails with:
- training tips
- workout ideas
- pre/post run snack and meal options
- Pilates exercises for runners
- Pilates stretches to prevent injury
- cross training ideas
- and more!
Access to a private Run Club Facebook group:
This group will be a place for us to cheer each other on, celebrate ups and downs, share ideas, seek accountability and most importantly a place for us to find motivation when we’d rather stay on the couch and skip our workouts. 🙂
The group will kick off on Monday, October 6th and run through the end of November (8 weeks total).
The Run Club will take place via email and through the private Facebook group.
Because we’re all busy and could all use a little extra motivation to get out there and run, especially as the busy Fall season takes over.
Because when there is accountability involved, we’re much more likely to succeed.
Because let’s be honest, sometimes going for a run sounds like a drag and it’s much more fun when you’re doing it in community with others!
Since the program will take time and resources on my end there will be a small fee of just $27. I really crunched the numbers to keep it affordable and accessible for you.
Because that’s just enough to cover the cost of running an online program and I a firm believer of having ‘skin in the game.’ Trust me, I run free and paid programs throughout the year and when you invest a little bit of money into something you are FAR more likely to succeed because you’ll want to get your money’s worth. I see it all the time.
In addition 10% of all proceeds will be donated to Girls On The Run, a nonprofit that inspires young girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. Click here to read more.
Getting back into your running routine AND supporting a good cause? It’s a win-win.
SO, ARE YOU READY TO GET FIT WITH ME?
I’m so excited for this and really hope you’ll join me. It’s going to be fun!
