I just found out the date for the 2009 More half-marathon in NYC has finally been confirmed! Put April 26, 2009 on your calendar and get ready to start training!
Last year 50 area women participated in our Training for More program to walk or run the 13.1 miles of the More half-marathon. This race is designed for women over 40, but if you’re a younger female you can also participate. Guys – you’re shut out!
If you participated in the 2008 training program, look for additional information soon about the 2009 program. If you want to participate this year, welcome! The only requirement is that you complete the required forms, have your physician’s permission to participate, and are willing to give it a try. We schedule walking and running training sessions on various days and times to meet as many different schedules as possible. I provide detailed information on walking, running, shoes, and clothing; nutrition and hydration; mental strategy; and how to make your goals a reality.
Here’s what you need to do:
– Commit to the training program. Yeah, it will be cold, snow, and possibly even some sleet thrown in for good measure. We live in New England! The key is to dress appropriately and wear great shoes.
– Put yourself a bit higher on your to-do list. You may need to have someone else start dinner, or skip cleaning the house on Saturday morning to fit in a training session. You’re worth it, you have goals, and you’re going to make those goals a reality!
– Stay tuned for more information. Post a note or a question here, or email me directly at Lynn@LynnGrieger.com if you have questions.
I had so much fun last year walking, running, and getting to know every person in the training group. We’re a fantastic group of women with diverse interests, ages, shapes, and athletic ability. We all worked together to meet a common goal – finish the half-marathon smiling – and we did it! This year should be even more fun.
