For more motivation, here’s a little info on one of our team members:
He started running in late 2003. In Feb 2004, he forced myself to register for a 5k. He hated running when he started it. After training for two months for the first 5k in May 2004 (Heart Mini Marathon), he timed in at 22 min, 45 sec. That is 4 min, 50 sec per km.
Later that year, he ran a 10 k in 5 degree celsius weather, in 48.5 minutes. And then the running didn’t stop. The first half marathon was the US Air Force Marathon at Wright Patterson Air Force Base, Dayton. Timed in at 1 hour, 42 minutes (4 min, 50 sec per km). It was a tough run, but it was a phenomenal experience. The excitement of running with thousands of people. The rush of accomplishing a personal feat. And the glory of beating your fear of running or the distance. Its something to experience.
Running is great way to burn fat and lose those love handles and show that elusive six pack! Besides this, running has many health benefits.
The half marathon is a great event. Register and start training now. The Dream Run is a great way to start running for non runners.
At Fitho, we’ll create running programs customized to your needs. If you have any questions
