How to Get Your Friends Addicted to Running (From Zero to 14K in 7 Weeks!)

Monday, June 16, 2014
Hey RIF REVers,

Had the best running weekend. Caught up with our RIF REVers from the Flying Nuns at Samford. Thanks for showing us your trails Minty, Terina and the crew. Had a great workshop with most of the running community out that way. Then Sunday was City to South and I had been looking forward to it because we had been helping a group called the Hills Angels who just over 7 weeks ago had absolutely no running experience whatsoever. On Sunday they all did their first race…14K!  It was so much fun running with the guys and I wanted to do a quick video with Nick who not only completed City to South but is now running 12K a day!! We all have friends we want to share the joy of running with and I know a lot of people can be reluctant so this short video is quick a example of how to get started without punishing anyone or scaring them off running for good.

Thanks to all the Hills Angels who came along for the journey and a special shout out to Simon and my running buddy on the day John. Also congrats to RIF REVers Hintza, Pat Nisbel and Liam Woollett who came third, fourth and fifth. Great work guys!

Stay tuned for more on speed work and plyometrics later in the week.
