Good morning. This post is one day late, but for good reason. I’ve been lost in all the inspiring comments for the past two days. Holy smokes. If you need some inspiration just go through all the comments on the Find Your Mezamashii Giveaway post. I can almost guarantee you’ll want to lace up (and hug someone).
If I had the power to give you all shoes I would. Maybe someday if my life pans out the way it does in my head and I live my dream to work for Mizuno. Yeah, I love their shoes just THAT much. He he.
Yesterday I went on a little brilliant run of my own.
So, I’ll get right to the winners today. No blabbing or food pictures or anything. Watch out though because I might be back soon because I have lots of fun food stuff to share.
On to business…….
The winners chosen to join the Mezamashii Run project are……
Congratulations winners! I’m honored to be able to invite you to the Mezamashii Run Project.
Please email me at email@example.com . All I need is your email address to send it along to my Mizuno friends.
If you do not claim your invite by Wednesday, October 10th, it will be given to another entrant.
I’m telling you, you all are such inspirations and I think we could make a pretty darn good book out of everyone’s comments, but the following ones just had to be shared.
You may want to grab a pumpkin mocha and get comfortable.
Want to put on your running shoes now?
Want a hug?
If you’re a newbie to running I have a couple tips for you from my doctor friend coach Jason Karp.
We met at the IDEA Fitness Convention back in July. I took his running seminar and then had to buy his book Running for Women.
I’ve begged him to coach me multiple times, but I guess my charm hasn’t quite worked yet. I’m going to keep trying though. One of these days maybe he’ll take me on.
I recently attended another very informative session of his on endurance running where I learned quite a bit. I’ll be sharing that information soon, but for now I’ll just give you the tips he so kindly gave me to pass along for new runners.
Do you have any tips for beginners on how to start running?
There’s lots of tips. I have written a whole book on this!
Here’s a couple:
1) If you can’t run for more than 5 minutes without stopping, alternate running for 2 minutes and walking for 1 minute.
2) Stop being afraid and walk out your front door and run.
What would be a good base schedule or goal for someone who is just starting to run?
This all depends on where the person is starting from. If someone can’t run 1 mile, a good goal would be to complete 1 mile. If someone can run 1 mile, a good goal would be to be able to run 2 miles.
Thanks for being patient! Have a wonderful Saturday!
