I’m really excited to kick off another Virtual Race Series! Hope you are, too.
After focusing on short distances for the 5 by the 5th, we’re going to focus on slightly longer distances for the fall- 5 or 10 miles by the 5th of the month.
WHAT: Run your 5 or 10 mile virtual race by the 5th of each month.
WHEN: The fall series will run from September- December, 2013.
WHERE: Anywhere you’d like- with friends, on a trail, or as part of your long run or a local race.
MEDALS: An optional medal will be available at the end of the series.
HOW: Sign up below and add your race to the RESULTS spreadsheet to be eligible for prizes each month.
In addition to the prizes pictured above (Tommie Copper sleeves, Nature Box snacks, Honey Stinger gels, Brady Bands, FLIPbelt, 3 Camelbak quick grasps and 2 boxes of KIND bars), I’ll also be giving away:
- $100 gift card to LUTA (sportswear site)
- Gaiam sports bag filled with goodies
- 1 box of Larabars
- 1 box of the new Probar chews
- “Words to Sweat By” jewelry
- Dinah hot pants
- Allied Medal Rack ($100 value)
- and more!
You can sign up for the series below. And a share on Twitter or Facebook counts toward extra prize entries.
There is also an online coaching option (more details below!) The cost is $24, or $6 a month but will increase to $35 September 1st.
New this year: Online Coaching option
I had requests for group coaching and decided to give it a whirl.
Online Coaching will include:
- Access to a private Facebook group
- A weekly speed workout for new and experienced runners
- Weekly strength suggestion
- Running tips specific to distance running
- Group sharing and support
Note: This does not take the place of individualized coaching. Group coaching is ideal if you are an experienced runner who wants to get faster, new to running and want support and accountability, or want to start incorporating strength and speed workouts on a regular basis.
Go here to sign up for group coaching. Let me know if you have any questions!
(Walkers are always welcome, too!)
I’m excited to have some added motivation to push myself on tempo runs and I can’t wait to see how we all improve this fall.
Are you in?
