We here at The Sisterhood have a passion for fitness. For many of us, that includes running and we all started out looking at that first 5k as our goal. Is this a goal of yours? Have you always wanted to become a runner but didn’t know where to start? Are you coming back to running from a break? Did you start training for a 5k but fall off the wagon?
No worries! I have just the thing for you! Perhaps you’ve heard of the Couch to 5k Program. Please take a moment to go check it out. I’ll wait. Are you intrigued? Did you know The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans has its very own Couch to 5k Training group, lead by myself and Lisa? Well, we do! We’ve been hosting this private group on Facebook for a couple years now with lots of success stories as a result. Women (and maybe a couple men) getting off the couch and taking the step to become runners. This group of newbie and experienced runners is available for encouragement as you begin (or continue) your running journey. We “meet” through our closed group on Facebook (so only members can read/see your posts) and can answer questions, help with training ideas, and commiserate with each other. Click here to join the group and get in on the fun! You can read about a couple of our C25K graduates here and here. Fall is just around the corner and with the temperatures finally dropping, there is no better time to get started on your running journey.
Now that you know where to begin, let me tell you about our newest virtual race. Registration is now open for our Turkey Trot and Mutt Strut Virtual 5k/10k/Mile Run and Walk! On November 23, 2014, we will lace up our shoes (and a few us might put a puppy on a leash) and head out wherever we are for this awesome virtual race. Not only can you get in on the action – with a fun race medal and super soft t-shirt, but your favorite four-legger can join you for the run! If you would like to purchase a dog-tag medal for your pooch, 100% of proceeds from dog medal sales will benefit Love-A-Bull, a charity promoting responsible guardianship and improving the image and lives of pit bull type dogs through education, advocacy, and rescue. For all the run details and to register, click HERE!
The timing couldn’t be more perfect – we are about 9 weeks away and that’s how long our C25K program is! Get ready to tackle that Turkey Trot and complete your goal of running a 5k a little over 2 months from now with our Turkey Trot and Mutt Strut Virtual 5k Training. I’d love to have you join us!
