8 Weeks to the Bluenose Race Weekend; Are you Ready?

It gives us great pleasure to announce thatFITNESSfive42has been engaged by Johnson Insurance; the official sponsors of this year’s Bluenose 5K Race, to train their employees for “their” Bluenose 5K event.   With FITNESSfive42’s Run@Work Programming their popular 5K - Chance of a Lifestyle™ Program will prepare Johnson employees for the exhilaration and sense of accomplishment that comes with crossing their first Bluenose 5K finish line.  The Chance of a Lifestyle™ program essentially comes to the workplace; it eliminates the excuses of not having any time for exercise, or being too busy before and after work etc…the Chance of a Lifestyle™ active living program is delivered to the workplace over the lunch hour and provides facilitated runs and classroom instruction over an 8-week period.

Running and the Space-Time Continuum

 
When athletes,and in this case runners become focused on an activity they can easily lose track of time and place.  This may happenwhen you’re engrossed in a good book or watching a movie…I bet it has even happened to you; you stop what you were doing and realize the time has flown by…and depending on where you were at the time you may have forgotten where you were. 
 
There are times I have been sofocused on driving that I couldn’t recall how I got to my destination.  Scary I know, but I’m sure I’m not alone…(be honest now)!

Running Dogs You Say?

 
The half marathon training group; to say the least, is motivated and eager to run.  It’s only week one and the runners have already started to bond as a team.  I jokingly described them as a pack of sled dogs before their first run…they were laughing, limbering up and doing their best to contain the energy they couldn’t wait to let loose on the open road. But, the more I thought about it my team of runners actually has more in common with their canine counterparts than just exuberance and an abundance of pent-up energy.

The half marathon group hit the ground running...everyone was ready to get to work. A quick 5K run around the lake was enjoyed by all.  Energy levels and morale were high...Good work everyone!  It was great to see so many familiar faces...see you Thursday. Run Strong!

Half Marathon Practicum Starts tonight!

Our 12-week Half Marathon Training Practicum will be getting underway tonight and we're excited to meet our runners.  There is still time to sign up for this program using our online registration and you can always register in person this evening.  Again, we look forward to seeing everyone...and remember to come ready to rock & roll because we're going for a 5K Get Acquainted run around the lake.
 
There's a PR in your future; let's work together, set some goals and succeed as a team.
