RRCA Running Coach?

4 outside with the ladies--a big thank you to L and N for coming out today.  I know I would have talked myself into the treadmill--it was COLD 25 degree when we started out.  Once we got started the sun felt great and as always, I was thankful for running outside instead of on the TM.  Negative Splits on first 3 miles--not too shabby neighbor.

So a few months ago I started to look into trainer options--personal training programs, running coach certifications, spin instructor certifications.  I came to a few conclusions:
1) Some of the programs were too expensive
2) Some were "gimicky"
3) Some were not regarded highly

Being that I am already a health care professional (RN/MSN)--I thought I could combine my career with my passion for exercise, but I could not find a program that seemed like a good fit for someone who already has a health care background and fit into my schedule and budget.  

I did like the idea of being an RRCA (Road Runners Club of America) running coach--I have a grand idea of forming an all womens running club here in my area.  I envision a group just for ladies with group runs scheduled throughout the week--different locations and times, so whether you are a mom, working woman, student, or retiree---new, seasoned, or returning runner--you will fit right in.  Women helping other women achieve their running goals--no judgment only support.

I signed up for updates on certification programs and unfortunately noted that the programs all feel out of my area---until I received an update a couple of days ago--a certification program is coming to NJ in June--YEAH!  

So I told hubby---no flowers (I don't like roses anyway)--I have the perfect Valentine's Day gift he can give me.  I am all signed up and I can't wait. 

Today's Song, Sexual Healing--Shaggy Remix--(Help--I really love this song--something about Marvin Gay and Shaggy together--love their voices--but, this version is not available on iTunes;(--I found a old Max-a-million version, but it is not Shaggy)

I am coming to the RRCA course in June as well, all the way from South Carolina. Hope to see you there. I'm excited!

Glad to know someone in the class. I am really looking forward to it. I can't believed you are traveling up from SC--that is amazing. Have you received any notification from RRCA?

I haven't received anything yet. I'm guessing as the date gets closer they will start contacting us. There was a closer one in Atlanta but it was full so I figured why not NJ in the summertime :)
