Running Start offers women with barriers to fitness a chance to change their lives. Participants will train for, complete a beginner level running race, and build up the confidence, strength and motivation to create a lifestyle that includes running and fitness.
Personal Motivators are an integral part of Running Start as they provide each Beginner Racer with an extra level of support during her training which is mostly self-directed. Personal Motivators do not need to be fast, expert runners or coaches. They simply need to have experienced the life-changing effects that running and fitness have had on their own lives. They need to be willing to share their experiences as they support Beginners who are often nervous and afraid to take their first steps. Research has shown that a simple phone call from a live person can make the difference in keeping someone on track with an exercise program. Personal Motivators round out the experience curve of the Running Start community.
Running Start Personal Motivators will receive, in addition to a powerful network of women, a team top, gift certificate and kickoff gift, and 5k entry to run with her Beginner, along with expert support and advice from Running Start partners.
