To be a coach

I’m currently in the middle of interning at a fitness center. While it can get boring sitting at the desk, I have found one thing to absolutely love.

Helping coach a 5K training group.

Our members are of all ages, sizes and abilities. We meet twice a week to do a structured workout and give them a homework assignment for the week. They set goals, we talk about how they’re feeling and we’ve become a little running family.

I LOVE IT.

I got my first taste of run training with a group of kids at work, training for a kids run. It’s definitely different training children versus adults but rewarding and fabulous just the same. I love seeing them all grow and enjoy what I enjoy so much.

I’ve solidified in my head that I WILL be USATF certified as a run coach after graduation. I feel like I’m giving back to the community that has helped shape me.
