We are pleased, honored, and excited to announce the formation of the AllEars® Running Team.
This team will be co-captained by AllEars® feature writer Michelle Scribner and yours truly who together have combined to participate in over a dozen Walt Disney World sponsored races including four half-marathons.
So what is the goal for the AllEars® Running Team?
It's very simple. We all care about having good health…right?
We know that exercise goes hand in hand with developing good health…right?
We also know that having the support of others helps us reach our goals….right?
Thus it occurred to us that we can do all those and more by putting together a team to encourage our readers to start moving, get healthy, and improve the quality of their everyday life.
Another important goal is to help those who are considering taking up running and reaching for that ultimate goal of running in either the Walt Disney World half or full marathon…and we want to help.
Remember, we are not running experts nor are we medical professionals…but with over 40 years of running experience between us we can call upon our experiences to pass along to our team members what seems to work to help you get the most out of your training.
We also know where to go to get help…advice…training tools…almost anything you need.
How to Join
For you to join the 2010 AE Running Team you need to be registered for the 2010 Walt Disney World Marathon or Half-Marathon.
We will be focusing on helping everyone train for that weekend and we are excited for those who are planning to do either race for the first time as well as those returning.
If you would like to join the AllEars Running Team, please note that for 2010 we are limiting the number of participants. At this time we do not know what our participation limit will be.
If you would like to become a member of the AllEars Running team please send an email to Michelle at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell her why you want to be on the team and how you hope the team can help you.
We are striving to help not just our team members reach a specific goal but also looking to help others in need and so we are asking all who become members to work towards raising $500 towards Deb's Avon Breast Cancer Fund.
Our initial AllEars Running Team newsletter will contain more details on this fundraising effort. More on the team newsletter follows.
Team members will receive official AllEars Running Team Newsletters that will feature special articles along with some tips and hints on preparing for the big race.
Team members will be encouraged and welcomed to contribute to the team newsletter with questions regarding training and to share their success stories.
All team members will be invited to a special team meet the night before the 2010 Walt Disney World Half-Marathon. Time and venue is TBD.
We may also be holding a special post-race celebratory meeting in January….but we are getting ahead of ourselves here.
We are working on other surprises for team members…surprises we will announce in upcoming team newsletters.
Co-Captains Mike and Michelle
Oh and in case you were wondering, we are both registered to participate in the 2010 Walt Disney World Half-Marathon and are feverishly training.
