Congrats to Kim who joined the “8 weeks to Santa Shuffle” online run program and nailed her event on Saturday. 🙌.
Kim shared with us:
“I began the online running course out of a need to be accountable for training. I’m a mom of one and a stepmom to two, and they love their sports. It is SO easy to make an excuse to not go for a run so when the opportunity to do online run training came available, with the Santa Shuffle as the race, I jumped on it. I loved the different training days, the ability to ask questions, and the fact that I was now accountable to someone (Coach Amanda) to get my runs in. NO excuses! It worked!
For the past few years, I had been doing my 5k’s in 32 – 33 minutes. At the Santa Shuffle on Saturday, my time was 30:09! I missed a couple of runs along the way, with some kid activity, but for the most part, I stuck to my plan and loved it! I am now looking forward to running a half marathon next year, three years after I said I wouldn’t run another one ever again!”
You put in the work, Kim, and it paid off! Knowing someone is keeping an eye on your log and there to give a little nudge when needed adds that layer of accountability that can make all the difference. Looking forward to seeing what you tackle next!
