So you opened up your e-mail this morning only to find out you were denied entry into the Bank of America Chicago Marathon. That stinks. But I have great news. You can still run Chicago, help a great cause, and I will coach you through to the finish line. What a deal! I am working with the Muscular Dystrophy Association and Team Momentum this year to help their athletes train for the Chicago Marathon. By running with us you will receive a personal training plan to suit your marathon needs whether you are a first time marathoner or are looking to set a new PR. If you are in the Chicago area I will also be meeting with runners on Saturday mornings for group long runs and during the week for a midweek training run. I will also host a few clinics with Team Momentum on various topics that are aimed to help you reach that finish line. We will discuss fuel and hydration, proper foot wear, proper running clothes and even mental preparation techniques. Perhaps you weren’t even thinking about Chicago but have the itch to complete your first marathon. This is the perfect time for you. Our plan will start out with minimal mileage and over the course of our training we will slowly build both our distances and duration. By the time race day comes along you will be fully prepared to complete 26.2 miles. Even if you aren’t in the Chicago area I will be available at any time to discuss your training needs via e-mail. This practically makes this a personal training experience. The Muscular Dystrophy Association and Team Momentum are an incredible cause working towards finding an end towards muscle disease. As runners and athletes ourselves this is a very special cause to run for. There is reasonable fundraising required to help this awesome cause and you will also receive assistance with your fundraising along with a personalized website to help you reach your goals. If you really wanted to run and were shut out this is really an incredible opportunity for you to still get out there and help a great cause at the same time! If you have questions you can contact me here on this blog or through my e-mail address. I would love to chat with you!
