If you are new to running, I strongly encourage you to join Run Tampa’s group runs, even if you’re mostly walking. It’s all good. You will find the support and new friends will greatly impact your success.
We were all beginners at one point, and we want to do everything we can to help you in those early weeks and months.
If you’re interested in coaching, I’ll be starting a new beginner class in the fall, in September, 2017. This is for beginners of all levels, even if you’re still on the couch – or so busy that you never get to sit on the couch but also never get to exercise.
I’ll have two groups, one group of people working toward their first 5k and one group of people working toward their first half marathon.
In the Meantime
In the meantime, during the summer, you can prepare by listening to my two podcasts. They’ve helped runners all over the world. They’ve been downloaded over half a million times in 177 countries.
Beginner Runner Village Podcast for true beginners, people not yet stringing whole miles together.
I just want to encourage all you beginning runners. I started running using this program and have completed several 5k runs. In fact, l have won a medal in two of them, third in my age group both times. Great program, great coach! Thank you Debbie! – Ginnie Cox
Mojo for Running Podcasts for runners at all other levels.
Both are available through the Podcast app that comes pre-installed on iPhones, on the Stitcher Radio app, and Google Play for Music (search Debbie Voiles) for Android devices. The podcasts are packed with information. Each one features a different topic, the kind of things I share with my private coaching clients.
