From 5K fun runs to ultramarathons, races are getting canceled left and right, so odds are you’ve been affected. There are a whole plethora of emotions going on in the Run Your Best Life group, from outrage to disappointment, and also some relief for a few people who didn’t feel ready for their race. Wherever you are on the spectrum, this episode is going to help you feel better right now.
The women in the Run Your Best Life group know that the mindset work involved with running is just as important as the physical training, if not more, and so they’re working out their feelings and getting busy figuring out some creative ways to do their races virtually. Despite race cancelations, people are getting out there and running, getting on conference calls with friends, or doing them on their own.
Join me on the podcast this week as I show you why a race getting canceled can’t actually make you feel anything negative, and how you can flip the script and see this time as one that is special and truly a once in a lifetime opportunity. Letting your imagination run wild and getting creative means there is no limit to how awesome you can make a virtual event, so get thinking!
The Not Your Average Runner team is supporting coach Jen’s organization, the Northern Illinois Food Bank, through The Rebel Run Virtual Race. The Chicago area has been hit hard economically by the pandemic and we’re trying to raise $5000 to help families in need. $10 from every single race registration for The Rebel Run Virtual Race goes directly to this food bank, and so if you’ve had a race canceled recently, this is a great opportunity for you to run and help people in need. Check it out here!
The Rebel Runner Roadmap is a 30-day online class where I teach you the fundamentals of running. This is a class where you’ll learn how to start running the right way, or how to up-level your running. From running form, strength training, stretching, to all the brain work, it’s all in there. Doors are open for enrollment now, so get in there!
