Looking to lose the baby weight? Train with Savannah Striders to run the Rock n Roll Savannah 1/2 Marathon
That was the mantra I kept repeating in my head as I apprehensively entered the first Savannah Striders Rock N’ Roll Marathon and ½ Marathon Training meeting earlier this week. I was nervous to be the still-haven’t-dropped-the-baby weight mom in a room of fit and fabulous runners.
But everything was fine. The crowd at the standing-room-barely meeting could not have been more welcoming. I left looking forward to taking part in The Savannah Striders coaching program to run the 1/2 marathon. The Savannah Striders training is available for beginner runners like me as well as more advanced runners. All you need is the desire to run or walk the inaugural Rock ‘n’ Roll Savannah Marathon & ½ Marathon on November 5, 2011. The run will start on Bay Street and end at Forsyth Park.
The coaching is FREE once you join the Savannah Striders Running Club, a cost of $25 which includes a free technical running shirt. Coach Ivan Levinrad, a Doctor of Physical Therapy who has many years of running experience having completed 105 marathons, will help us beginner runners out with everything, right down to telling us whether we’re sporting the right running shoes.
The next Marathon & 1/2 Marathon Training Meeting is 7 PM Thurs. Feb. 3 at The Exchange Restaurant on Waters Avenue. For more info, click here. And remember: Live Bands Every Mile.
