Happy Monday Everyone!!!

“Be mindful of your self talk. You will have tough days when you feel like you’re not the fastest or the best runner among others, but it’s not about that. It’s about being the best version of yourself when you are out there running with perseverance. It’s about reminding yourself of why you run because at the end of it, it’s only you and your mind in solitude.” -- Pacer Lidia.

What a fun beginning to our LA Marathon training we had on Saturday. The focus and dedication must begin now. With that said, here is what we will be doing this week.

We meet at Palm Park 5736 El Rancho Dr, Whittier, CA.

MONDAY: 6:30pm – Get the week started on the right foot. The weather will be nicer than it’s been these last few weeks, so let’s get our miles in. Feel free to run easy on the trail, or jump over to Coach Mark’s Bridge to Half group for some speed work we can all benefit from. This will definitely help you achieve your goals for LA Marathon or your next half marathon, 10K or 5K.

WEDNESDAY: 6:30pm – It’s the middle of the week and time to get re-motivated for the weekend. Let’s keep moving forward. You can run on the trail or you can join those that go for hills. Although it’s hill repeat Wednesday, the hills are optional. Hills will help build leg muscles, and will help you on your next race, but we want you to listen to your body, and if you’re not up to running hills, please know it’s completely okay. Your safety is more important.

FRIDAY: Look out for a Facebook video post explaining how each of the marathon groups work. It’s important that we train to run strong and learn how to conserve our energy to withstand 26.2 miles comfortably. Don’t miss it.

SATURDAY: 7:00am – Training continues. Whether you’re walking, learning to run, building mileage and confidence, or training for your next half marathon or full marathon, we are here to welcome you, encourage you, support you, and cheer for you. So believe in yourself and let’s get this done…TOGETHER.

As a reminder, please remember to bring your headlamps, reflective gear, or flashlights to our midweek meetups. It’s getting dark early and we want you to be safe out there.

Also, please remember to sign up to bring water or post run snacks. Currently, we are looking to fill all slots for water, Gatorade, and 5oz cups.

See you soon Pacers!
