Newbie Running Club! Come check it out!

Welcome to the Newbie Running Club!  My name is Steph Shimkus and I am an RRCA certified distance running coach as well as an ACE certified personal trainer. I want to share my love of running with women who are interested in running but maybe don't quite know where to begin, what to do, what is safe, and/or are afraid to run without proper, guided instruction.  

With all of this in mind, I"m offering a running group specifically designed just for women who might consider themselves new or "newbies" to running.

When does the Newbie Running Club begin?
The first session begins 
Wednesday, November 18 at 9:00 am

What will each weekly session include?
-a weekly run of 2-4 miles (mileage will increase beyond this in time)
-running-specific strengthening exercises including core work before and after each run 
-tips on running form and technique
-information on how to eat as a runner/athlete
-tips on gear, shoes, running gadgets
-individual gait analysis
-the chance to make new friends

How long will each session last?
-Each session will be approximately 70-90 minutes (don't worry, we won't be running for 90 minutes!)

What will this cost?
-Your first introductory, 90-minute session is $10
-Monthly cost (if you know you will come each week) after introductory session is $70
-Occasional drop-in session price after introductory session is $20

When will each session meet?
-Wednesday mornings at 9:00 am (we can meet later since its cooler outside now)

Where will each running session meet?
-At Kadena's Risner gym's track for our pre-run warm up and then off we go!

Where will we run?
-We will run all around base on loops and/or out and back courses that I have mapped out beforehand.  Our goal eventually will be to run off base and to run on other bases for changes of scenery and terrain.

How do you sign up?
-You can call or email me to sign up or just show up on Wednesday, November 18 at 8:30am

What is my contact information?
-Steph Shimkus
-Cell phone: 080.3514.3892

Come run with us!  I look forward to meeting each of you and working with you toward your individual goals!  Hopefully the Newbie Running Club, will get you on the road (pun very much intended) to a lifelong love, or at the very least like, of running!
