While thinking back to all of the thoughtful advice I have received from many coaches and runners over the past years I am going to make the month of February 2013 an experiment I have not seen and since I like being the first to do new things I am going to extend an offer to the next 15 people who comment on this thread a unique opportunity.
I am offering an opportunity to receive a month’s worth of free customized running coaching.
The coaching will begin with an interview about your running goals and background and within a few days I will have a week’s worth of training available for you based on your specific situation. From there we will remain in contact and adapt your following workouts and training sessions based on how your body is responding to those workouts.
Why would I do this?
The reason for doing this is in the mindset of the “The Lean Startup” as written by Eric Ries. While I currently do have a number of athletes I am coaching, with greatly varying goals, I am looking to gather feedback as to how I can improve my services as well as pay back to the running community all that it has done for. If I coach those who come forward well, hopefully they will be impressed enough with the services they’ve been rendered to refer friends and continue on.
So if you are looking to take that next step, looking to fulfill that New Year’s resolution, or just ready to test what your body is really capable of (it’s more than you think) I invite you to join us.
