To get everyone ready for the Volunteer Ministry Center (VMC) 5k this year, I'll will be doing a series of free training days. On these days we will have discuss proper form, training advice, how to run, how to land, how to breathe, etc. as well as do training runs each time as well. Additionally, on the first night I will provide everyone who attends with a free training program designed to get you ready for your first 5k in just 7 weeks (not only that - but in just 3 days a week and just 20-30 minutes each of those days - you can do this!).
Each night will begin and end with an open forum for people to ask questions specifically related to their own needs, form questions, general running questions, barefoot and/or minimalist questions, questions about/from Second Wind: the running coach you never had but always needed, etc.
If you are an experienced runner, come learn about barefoot and minimalist running, better efficiency, and injury prevention
If you are a novice runner, come get instruction specific to your own needs and concerns and get yourself in racing form
If you are a brand new runner (or one who has Never run) come learn from the ground up (literally) and gain the information and confidence to go from not being a runner at all to running your first 5k in just 7 weeks!
The dates: (note - all runs are held at 7:00pm at the World's Fair Site in Knoxville, TN)
--we will NOT meet September 6th--
And the race is on September 24th
Also, come on out for the informational 'Captains' luncheon on Wednesday August 3rd at noon at the Crowne Plaza Hotel. VMC will provide the lunch, but for the Captain's lunch you must RSVP with Karol: firstname.lastname@example.org
