Train Now for Running in Fall Races

“But I can’t run from my front door to the corner mailbox!”

That’s a quote from my daughter Susan a few years ago when someone challenged her to participate in the Cherry Blossom Run.  After her doctor advised that asthma was no excuse for saying “no” – in fact, it would be good for her – she went online and found a training program for beginning runners.  And yes, she did finish the race.  If she could do it, you can, too!

Now you can train with local resident and prominent runner, trainer and author Christine Hinton, also known as The Running Coach.Marathon Runners

Christine is offering her 10–week training program for Crofton area runners, beginning on September 19 at Crofton Country Club or Christine’s house, depending on the size of the group.  They’ll be running in and around Crofton, in all weather conditions, as preparation for the Annapolis Striders 11th annual Cold Turkey 10k (6.2 miles) on Sunday November 22 at 8 a.m.  Plan on an hour for the initial session, and more time as the running distance increases.

If you prefer, you can train for the 8k Downs Park 5 Miler on Saturday November 7 at 8:30 a.m.  (Or you can train just for the heck of it and not participate in any race at all!)

Unsure?  Take a minute to read Christine’s Top Ten Reasons to Hire a Coach.

Here’s what you need to bring to the first training session:

Running Shoes, Running Clothing, Hat, Gloves, Water bottle
Change of clothes for ride home or coat to cover up, Towel,
Completed Runner’s Questionnaire, Signed Waiver Form, and your payment ($100 for the 10–week training, $80 for the 8–week training). 

What you get:

Visit Christine’s website and her blog for more details about Coach Christine, the training program, and the benefits of training.

Running in and around Crofton with a bunch of other local folks sounds to me like a great opportunity for making new friends, having a lot of fun, and learning how to run correctly.  What are you waiting for?
