For all of you out there who are contemplating a 5K, this training series is for you! If you’ve been running for a little while, or maybe you used to run and you’ve taken a break and want to get back into it, or even if you’ve been out there walking, you can do it.
This week is the first of a three part series to get you to the starting line of your first 5K. On this episode, I’m going to help you decide if you’re ready and how to prepare for your first ever 5K! I’m here to help you quieten your inner mean girl and show you that really, most of the experience is all mental.
I’m showing you how you can turn that worst-case scenario playing over and over in your head into a best-case scenario. I’ll also be sharing a mantra you can practice to get yourself out there so you truly believe you belong at the starting line.
I’ve got a very special event coming up on the 6th of April in New York City! It’s the very first Not Your Average Runner Meet-Up! Go to notyouraveragerunner.com/meetup for all the details. See you there!
