Becoming A Runner
Building the habits, developing the mindset, and finding the motivation to become the runner you want to be
Course Coming Soon!
Launching December 2017
Many more people start to run than become runners.
Why is that?
Because running can be hard. Staying home curled up on the couch on a rainy day can be sooo tempting on a rainy day, even when you know you should head out for a run.
Becoming a runner is about having the right mindset, finding your motivation, building running habits, and beating the excuses that all face when deciding if we should head out to run.
I called this course 'Becoming A Runner' instead of 'How To Run' because I'm not going to focus very much on how to run.I will touch on gear, form, stretching and other specifics of running, but the majority of the course is on the 'soft' skills of being a runner.
Mindset. Motivation. Habits. Goals. Learning to ignoring the little voice in you head that tells you should quit. Ignoring the other little voice that says you are silly to think you'll ever make progress you so may as well quit now.
We all have that little voice (I named mine Dave - I found it's easier to ignore that way). Don't let that stop you. Become a runner. Get ready to run in your neighborhood 5k, run around the neighborhood with your friends, or start on the path to one day running your dream marathon.
It all starts with becoming a running and building a running habit.
