I began running in 1978 during my junior year in college – and it has become a very important part of my life since. If running is something that you are interested in doing, you should know that you just can’t go from doing nothing to heading out the door to run. You need to gently work into it. You need to get your body used to moving before you start running.
My name is Judy Mick and when I started running it was basically to keep my weight down (or I should say get it back to where it was before I started college). And, I’ve been running since. In fact, I have not missed a single day of running since 1985!
Now, I’m not a former Olympic runner – I’ve never been nationally ranked – I’m just like you. I decided that I wanted to become a runner and I did. And, I’ve been running ever since. So, I know how you feel. And, I can help you to become a runner.
Some benefits of becoming a runner are:
I’ve put together a program to slowly get you from doing absolutely nothing to be able to run. We go from nothing to building up your walking and then building up to running. You don’t want to do too much too fast – or you risk getting injured!
In this program we cover:
If you agree that becoming a runner is for you:
But, don’t just take my word for it! Here are what some famous people have to say about running:
“Running is one of the best solutions to a clear mind.”
- Sasha Azavedo
“Running helps me stay on an even keel and in an optimistic frame of mind.”
- Bill Clinton
“Everyone who has run knows that its most important value is in removing tension and allowing a release from whatever other cares the day may bring.”
- Jimmy Carter
“Running has made being depressed impossible. If I’m going through something emotional and just go outside for a run, you can rest assured I’ll come back with clarity.”
-Alanis Morissette, singer
Even though running is not hard to start, there has to be a reason to change from what you are doing (sitting on the couch perhaps) to something new and potentially life-changing. In other words, you have to find your heart.
Earlier I mentioned the 3 biggest reasons to start a running program:
These are fine motivators, but they are not personal motivators; these are not your “heart.” What is going to get you moving and keep you moving are more measured and personal statements and not quite so vague. Take a look at what some people have said that they want from running:
I want to:
Those statements are personal! Some of these statements may even sound familiar to you. When looking for motivation, dig deep. When you have a concrete and specific reason for a change, it will propel you forward through the tough running workouts and help you reach the finish line every time. Might I add; if your personal reason to run brings a tear to your eye, even better. You’ve found the heart of your motivation.
Now, are you ready to get up and get started?
When you sign up, you’ll receive the program in a written format, plus an audio recap of each section! There is also bonus information runners can use and a subscription to The Streak – my free newsletter for runners!
So don’t delay! Get up and start getting yourself into shape! We do it easily and safely!
