You may not be a runner...yet. That could change. What day would be better to consider it that National Running Day. I like to say I run, like a turtle trudging through peanut butter...but I run.
We have a challenge for you...
What: Biz Johnson Express Half Marathon When: Saturday, October 11, 2014
Where: Lassen National Forest (Susanville-Westwood area) http://www.coastaltrailruns.com/bizz_johnson.html#driving_directions
Cost: Registration is $45 – plus $15 shuttle fee. The run is “one-way” – flat and downhill. A shuttle takes runners to starting point and you end at another location. If you have a ride to the starting point – the $15 is not payable. DUE August 1st – or price increases.
Why: This is a run that one of our employees participated in and loved. Because of illness, she will be unable to do it. We are putting together a MMHD Team and running for her.
BEFORE YOU SAY NO “I Don’t Run…” Think about this…
This is a large challenge – something hard to endure and probably not something most of us want to do. It won’t be easy. For these reasons it will be a meaningful tribute to a person who loved to run.
If you don’t run at all – that doesn’t matter. You have a LONG time to train and we have a training program for every level – the non-runner, the walker, the one who hasn’t exercised at all, the one who wants to do a walk/jog race….we have 12, 14, 16 and 20-week training plans.
It is our goal to get as many people as we can to commit to this cause. We will also be setting up a pledge plan for participants to get pledges to establish a scholarship fund.
