Much to my surprise, this running coach thing is taking off like freaking gangbusters. After my last blog post on the 10th, I got a a few emails asking if I could coach from far away--phone and internet--and blamo, my first not-local runner signed up. Which got me thinking...
Truth is, there are zillions of 'on-line' running coaches out there, and 99% of them are probably faster than I am. So if you're looking for some kind of former Olympic hopeful, I'm definitely not your girl.
But if you're looking for a normalish person with lots of running experience, soon to be USATF certified, who will take someone who says, Running seems impossible, but I really want to try, or I'm dying to break 30 minutes in the 5k, and help make it happen, then I might be your girl. I'm super cheap, too.
These are some of my runners. Any one down there remind your of yourself?
This past Saturday, every single one of those runners ran for twenty-nine minutes straight without stopping--because they're awesome and because they're putting themselves out there. If they can do it, you can do it. I mean it.
If you're interested, send me an email at LawsonAmyB@yahoo.com. I'll send you the link to my coaching website and you can nose around a little bit. Just so you have an idea, coaching goes for $59 a month--that's cheaper than a family trip to Outback Steakhouse (but way less awesome than a bloomin' onion).
I should really just put a link to my site right here, but I'm feeling kind of private about it. Which is strange, because I tell you guys all kinds of things about my hemorrhoids and the time my husband pooped in my eye.
Maybe I'll work up the nerve to post the link to my site tomorrow, but in the mean time, if you're interested, email me. If you're a blog reader, let me know and I'll give you $5 off each of your first three months--that's the equivalent of three loaves of bread and an US Weekly. Don't delay, it's big time stuff.
