Ready, Set, Run!

We have been practicing our ENERGY AWARD cheers all summer and we CANNOT wait to start our Fall season! In the spirit of starting the season, we wanted to share our TOP THREE tips for getting ready for the season.

STRETCH! One of the most important parts of any workouts is stretching your muscles. But why stop there? Not only do we want to encourage our teams to stretch our muscles we also want you to s-t-r-e-t-c-h your comfort zone. Go into this season with an open heart and an open mind and you will be amazed by how much these lil’ GOTR girls will help you stretch and transform into the best version of YOU! Whether you are a coach or a parent, your GOTR girl(s) has her own unique way of learning the lesson and demonstrating her knowledge. Ask her questions! When you challenge her to think critically about what she is learning, she will in turn challenge and teach you.

LEARN TO LOVE THE EMAIL *DING* NOTIFICATION! We here at Girls on the Run of the Rockies like to keep you in the know! Throughout the season we will send you a 411 to make sure you have all the information you need. Coaches, don’t be afraid to send the parents an email to recap the week. Parents, don’t be afraid to reach out to your coach or the GOTR Rockies staff when you have questions, concerns, praise, or even an inspiring story. We love to hear from you and we will try our best to make you love our emails with engaging and important content.

START TRAINING! One of the most rewarding parts of the season is seeing every single GOTR girl finish the race that they have been training for, the only thing sweeter is seeing her complete it with the ones that love and support her. While all coaches are registered to run already, parents, friends, the mailman, your sister’s friend’s roommate’s mom can also register to run. CLICK HERE to register to run! Need help with a training plan? There are a few apps and a few online training plans that can help you get going. Couch to 5K is a free app that will get you to your goal in 8 weeks OR you can CLICK HERE for an online 10 week training plan. You don’t have to be a runner to have fun and celebrate the season!
