Thinking About Joining?

It’s the first day of spring, so it seems natural to start thinking about the upcoming season. What are you planning for spring? And do you dare dream about summer, with its warmer weather and sunny days? Have you always wondered what it would be like to get in better shape and see how it would affect your outlook, your health, and your happiness?

Most folks will continue to wonder. They think a marathon training program can’t really be for them. “I mean, I don’t even LIKE to run,” the’ll say. Or they’ll think “I haven’t run in years. I can’t do a marathon.”

Running doesn’t have to be like your high school gym class where you are wheezing as you struggle around a track. It’s meant to be enjoyed at an easy pace while you talk shoulder-to-shoulder with a friend. That’s the way you run (or walk!) a marathon. Or a half-marathon. Or your first 3 mile run or walk with our group.

And if you don’t believe me, check out some of these blog entries from folks that have changed their lives (one with Portland Fit, and one similar story):

From Fat to Finish Line.  One day Jen in New Jersey made an impulsive but life changing decision.

12 Minute Mile.  Notes from the ‘back of the pack’ by a Red Assistant Coach

Our next season starts on March 31st at 8am at NW 21st & NW Raleigh in Portland. The absolute hardest part is getting out of bed that first day and showing up. 99.9% of people don’t do that one thing. If you are unsure, come out and just watch that first day. Look around and see who shows up. Or try the first 3 mile run or walk (hint: you can do both!). If you like what you hear and how it feels to be a part of a supportive and fun program, then join Portland Fit and come out the following week.

You’re going to get out of bed on Saturday, March 31st eventually. So why not treat yourself to something different? Even if it’s raining or cold, we’ll be out there waiting for you. We’re here to show you how to do this because we were once exactly like you. Let us show you what happens next.

Stay fit,
John
