Happy Valentine’s Day! Be sure to tell someone how much you love them!
A couple days ago, I received a message from a reader saying they saw some photos of me in Fitness magazine. Huh. I had no idea! I wasn’t able to get to the store until today, and sure enough, there are four photos of yours truly in the magazine (now if only it listed my blog name I would be a happy girl!)
Can you find all 4 photos of me without looking below?
The article accompanying these photos (page 74) is titled “Ready. Set. Run!” and spreads the message that anyone can run. When you turn the page, it opens out into a huge training plan chart for running a 5k in six weeks, running a 10k in eight weeks, or running a half marathon in twelve weeks. It gives you a guide on what workouts to do on what days to help you reach your goal, as well as tips for preventing injury.
Tips on how to run better, a gear guide, and popular races and their websites are also included in this handy guide. I am so glad that a magazine as popular as Fitness is helping people achieve their running goals by reminding us that running isn’t just for the elite or super fit, but that average Joe’s like myself can reach their goals as well! It also includes with each plan what to expect, and gives motivational advice. It’s a very uplifting piece, I am so glad they put it in the mag. If you haven’t picked up the issue I encourage you to do so simply for this training plan if you are looking for something to get you started on your running journey.
Did you spot me? I know it’s hard to see with the gloss of the pages, so here they are up close.

I was so stoked and honored to see my photos in the magazine, and am so thankful to be included with the great message that this article gives! I hope you will check it out and get moving!
QOTD: What training plan to you use? or do you even use one?
