Have you ever thought about running a 5K?
Do you want to just be able to make it to the finish line of the local charity race this spring/summer?
Maybe you don't even care about running, but you are ready to get healthy and fit for GOOD!
I know EXACTLY how you feel:
Before I was introduced to Beachbody, I was a runner. I ran in high school and off and on in college, but it was never year-round and never consistent. Then, I got married, I had kids, my body changed. Life changed. My time was not my own and I was feeling uncomfortable in my own skin. I picked up running again and decided to run 3 miles, 3 times a week. While I was able to do this better over time, I was not losing any weight. I actually ran my first half marathon at a size 10/12. I thought I was "destined" to be this size forever.
I looked back at my race photos and didn't like what I saw. I decided to figure out "clean eating" and give it a go. Let me tell you, it was HARD. Like, SUPER HARD. I was on an island, all alone, and no one around me understood what I was doing or why. But, I knew that I wanted to change MORE than I wanted to stay the same. So I kept going.
In four months, I had lost 30lbs. My race times got faster and I realized that this lifestyle was maintainable.
After a few more half marathons and a full marathon, I decided I needed a break from running and decided to try this "Beachbody" thing that I honestly knew nothing about. What I found were some AMAZING cross-training programs that fit SO well with my running and allowed me to get stronger. Along with that, the meal guide and portion control system really dialed in my nutrition. I had been eating whole foods, but portion control is where it's at if you want to maintain for life.
Since I hadn't been running as much with an injury, I had gained a pant size before starting 21-Day Fix. After one round of the Fix I had lost that pant size and FINALLY felt good about what I was doing. I completed PiYo while Half Marathon training and set personal records in both my half and my 5K race times. You can read my review here.
It wasn't just the great programs I could do from home instead of going to the gym. It wasn't just the amazing nutrition through daily Shakeology to help me get all my nutrients and recover better than ever before. It was the GROUP. The group of people who were JUST LIKE ME kept me going. These people came from all different backgrounds: runners, non-runners, coaches, challengers, all shapes and sizes. We worked TOGETHER to achieve our goals.
THIS is the beauty of challenge groups. Not only is there motivation daily and helpful tips provided, but you receive 1:1 coaching and mentoring AND the encouragement of perfect strangers who grow to be your friends. I have been hooked ever since!
So, what is this 5K: Start to Finish Challenge Group?
This group is going to be one-of-a-kind. It is an accountability group for EVERYONE. The BONUS is that a 5K training plan will be provided to help you accomplish your first 3.1 mile race (or first in a long time), if you would like to work towards that goal.
Here are the details:
