Who are you known as?Jan 14, 2019
Funny how labels work.
What I mean by labels, is what you are known as.
For most of us, we are known as "Runners". And if someone calls us a runner, we smile knowing that we've earned that label from putting in the miles for many years.
A couple of weeks ago, a co-worker called me a "Jogger" and my face contorted, I straighten and turned and immediately corrected him, "No, I'm a Runner!". After all, I've put in a lot of work to become a runner and I don't associate with my visual of a 1980's jogger.
So here's why I brought this up.
As I keep working with the Forever Runner Method, I've come to the realization that I have miss labeled myself. My focus of the Forever Runner Method is pulling all the critical parts together for older runners so that we can continue to enjoy being healthy and fit as we age.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but to me, a running coach conjures up an image of someone who develops structured training plans and focuses on the type and intensity of workouts you are to do each week building to your goal race.
But the Forever Runner Method doesn't use structured training plans.
Instead, it's more of a holistic approach to keeping us older runners going without inflammation, chronic stress and injury so we can enjoy more independence and freedom as we age.
So it's more of an anti-aging program.
Since I don't fit the mold of a conventional running coach, I've decided to change my label to "Longevity Coach", which matches my training and passion better.
I feel more connected with this movement and that's what I mostly enjoy working with runners on. Plus it matches my Primal Health coach, Mark Sisson's longevity project coming later this year.
