Summer Happenings and Coaching!

Woof. I've been so bad about blogging recently! I'm going to blame it on summer and all the travel that comes with it. I've been in three locations that don't even have internet/cell service this summer, so that's my excuse!

This summer has been filled with great trips, lots of heat, summer running and friends/family! I can't complain, except for the fact that it's almost the end of July already! Since this is a running blog, I'll skip all the vacation stuff and go right to running!:

This past weekend, I spent all day Saturday and Sunday learning more about running than I knew was possible. I took the RRCA course to become an official running coach! This is something that I've wanted to do for a while, but it's so freaking hard to get into one of these courses! They're either located across the country from you, or are full by the time you can hit "register." I was so excited when I saw that one of these courses was coming to NYC that I registered immediately and finally got in!

The course was great! The instructor, Randy Accetta, kept us laughing for 18 hours while also teaching us so much. This course refreshed my memory on many things, introduced new ideas and information to me and got me even more excited about coaching! I've been unofficially coaching a handful of people for the last few months and am excited that I'm only two steps away from being an officially certified running coach (I still have to take and pass the course test and take a First Aid/CPR course)!

I'm still working on developing a coaching page on this blog, but if you're feeling lost while running in the summer heat, still don't have a training plan for a race that's coming up in only a few weeks or want to add some structure to your summer running, let me know! I'd love to help you reach your goals, whatever they may be!
