I was on the phone to my life coach crying, again. I had a job I wasn’t crazy about and I wanted to do more, be outside and help people! We had just moved to Seattle and I was lonely and confused why no one would invite me over to do stuff. I started to take it personally. A HUGE dream of mine was to start my own business. It seemed completely overwhelming. My coach, Kris (As an aside, I am a big believer in coaches. They make magical stuff happen) asked me, “what do you want to do?”
I blurted out, “I want to teach people how to start running”
Kris answered “Why?”
“Because it was so incredibly hard for me to start, but I have learned so much about myself and other people. Because its fucking hard at the beginning, and you have no idea that it gets easier. I want to be the person to tell people. ‘You can do this. You will love it. YOU can do anything'”
From there, it was like a wild fire, I kid you not. We got a pricing structure, people were excited about it. People signed up. Peoples lives were changing. It was amazing. My goal was to do this full time by the end of the year. That was 10 years ago this month. I got pregnant, laid off, and had a baby. It all worked out. It was hard, it was fun, and then hard again. It was all worth it. I love my job.
My goal has been, to get people to start running, and create community. That is it. Oh, and to have fun doing it. So, for Running Evolution’s 10 year anniversary, we are going to do the most logical and easiest next step. (drum roll please)
The Pack Program!! There’s one for running, that will include ALL of the running classes, training and weekly runs and another one for the RE:Boot Camp for a monthly fee, plus other perks. I am so over the moon excited about this. Everyone will be connected, run together and be healthy.
- Running Pack Program includes:
- Half Marathon Training
- Rock It Class x 4
- 10k Class x 3
- Couch to 5k Class
- 3 Runs a week (day and night)
- And a LOT more to come!
- Founding Pack Program Price: $95
Don’t worry RE:Boot Pack, you’ll have one too!
Registration for The Pack Program will open on February 1, and we’ll have a party for those who sign up and friends and family who have believed in me (like Mandy who I owe a nation to), and in running. All of the details will be leaked out over the next 12 days. (look for donuts!)
RE’s goal is to expand, and create more communities, and this way it’ll be easier to facilitate. I will start training more coaches and reach more people. You know, your basic world domination model.
Thank you all for being so awesome.
More details to come!
