If your motivation is flagging, perhaps a special event on the horizon will kick your tail into gear. Many of my SaddleBrooke clients and class participants plan to join me to walk the Everyone Runs Saguaro Physicians 5K event on November 13. It will be a morning of fun and fitness to remember. And you still have plenty of time to get in shape! The course is purported to be fairly level so the fall risk should be minimal.
Even if you don’t live in SaddleBrooke, you can plan to walk with us – the more the merrier and we always like to meet new friends. Just send me an e-mail to email@example.com so I can let you know where we will meet that morning. To sign up for the event, go to everyoneruns.net. Be sure to sign up for the 5K (3.1 miles) and not the half marathon or the kids fun run or you will be in for a real surprise that morning! If we have people interest in actually running, I will organize a separate group.
In preparation for this event, you should walk at least 3 days a week for 30 or more minutes. Remember when you sign up, you will sign a waiver basically saying you are fit and healthy enough to participate. So please prepare for this, OK?
