Good morning Hokeyfolks! Can I call you that?
So here’s a spot of evolution for our burgeoning bastion of blistering blogging boombasticism (Stan Lee is going to sue me for that); Hokeyblog was selected to join the Jeff Galloway Blogger Program! Rejoice!
OK but seriously now, I have been a follower, fan, and adherent of Jeff Galloway and his Run/Walk/Run method since I started training for my first Half Marathon four years ago. His programs have helped legions of runners push past their first Finish Lines and continued them on to countless more — strong, upright, injury-free, healthy, and ELATED. Jeff has made the seemingly ‘impossible’ QUITE possible for those who told themselves, “Oh I could never be a runner because …”
Needless to say, I was one of them. For a very, very long time. Until I wasn’t.
So what does this mean for our blog? I’ll basically be sharing information from Jeff Galloway here on a regular basis. These will consist of tips, coupons, and other nuggets of data that I think will be of interest to all you running types out there. We’ll see how it pans out over time, but for now I’m entirely excited over the prospects of this new partnership. I hope you guys will be too.
Speaking of which: I recently registered for the 2015 Jeff Galloway 13.1, which will be held in Atlanta on December 13, 2015 (This was neither a prerequisite for nor a perk of joining the Blogger Program; I had already registered last month and paid my own way in). From everything I’ve heard and read about the event, it seems to be wildly popular among runners. So if you end up going, say hi. I don’t bite. Much.
Anyway, this should prove interesting and fun and all such things. Let’s go down this rabbit hole together and see what we find. Sound good? Here’s the video:
