The post below was originally published in a private forum for my private clients. Office Hours now happen seasonally in webinar form, please check https://www.fitnessprotection.com/events to RSVP for the next one!
Homework: Please print the attached calendar, on the back of the printout please list, in chronological order, the races you want to do in 2016 or did last year and think you may want to do again. Circle the 2 that are MOST important to you. Then reach out to me and make an appointment with me, preferably during my office hours for those of you that are in the Denver area.
You are coached. You are loved. I am your friend. PLEASE let me be your friend!
I want you to be happy.
I want you to succeed.
I want you to love running.
I want you to have the most positive running, racing and coaching experience imaginable.
It is MUCH easier to make that happen when I'm part of the conversation about which races you want to run.
Coachless, unloved amateurs will pick a goal, then use Google and Runner's World to pick a race, THEN decide to hire a coach. More often than not, after I'm hired to help someone with their goal race, they wait 3 weeks and tell me #alltheraces they'd signed up for before they thought about me, and give me a hard sell about why they need to run each and every one and how doing so will be TOTALLY IN LINE with my training and how EVERY ONE MUST BE A PR. At that moment, I'm not Coach, cheering you on. I'm Mom, telling you "no" and lecturing you about making good choices. I don't like being in that position, please don't do it to me!!!!!!!!!!!!
I will be at BRC on Saturday morning from 7am. After I warm up the group and send them off, I will sit in the store and wait to speak to you, one-on-one, about 2016. Let's do this before the pace test since we will be outside that night. In the dark. It will be cold. The store is warm and has tables, coffee, donuts and clean potties that flush.
Hope to see you Saturday morning! RSVP HERE
*Some of you have long runs on Saturday morning; I don't want you to miss out on the group. We can work something out!*
