Is your troop attending the 2017 COOKIE KICKOFF GSSGC 5K COLOR DASH on JANURARY 14th?
The objective of the Couch to 5K program is not weight loss; rather it is a program for beginning runners to ease into a regular exercise routine that they will continue to follow after the event is over. Girls learn exercise is fun, social, goal-oriented, and is behavior that just happens to have health benefits.
Working towards a common goal with their friends provides girls with the social support they are looking for in their desire to be “normal healthy.”
Imagine; 100 girls will experience the joy of reaching their goal to run in and finish the Colorful Dash 5K because they have appropriate running shoes and access to the resources of the program. Girls will be part of this run club that promotes regular exercise.
After our many run sessions plus nutritional courses, see outline below, girls and female Moms / Leaders will complete a retrospective survey to assess program impact, current level of physical activity, and their motivation to stay active and eat healthy. Anticipated outcomes you should feel at the end of this couch to 5k opportunity:
- Participants will report feeling healthier.
- Participants will express a sense of personal accomplishment and increased confidence.
- Participants will feel that barriers to an active lifestyle (including lack of access to proper running shoes, lack of support, and lack of information on fitness and nutrition) have been removed during this program.
- Participants will report improved physical endurance and strength.
- Participants will report making healthier food choices.
Walk, Dance, Skip, Jog or Run, let’s train at your own pace and have FUN!
