First Strides® - North Myrtle Beach Workshop
Your weekly update from FirstStridesNMB
Dear Fall 2022 First Striders!
What an excellent first night we had! 103 of the rapidly growing 128 registrants were in attendance on a beautiful (albeit warm) evening. You’ve made your first strides towards a healthier you. Well done!
For those of you unable to attend or recently signed up, DON’T WAIT TO GET STARTED! The training schedule is a 12-week program that builds up each week. Waiting to begin puts you behind.
Please take the time to thoroughly read the 3 handouts you received (and available on our website at www.FirstStridesNMB.com under "Topics" on the side bar). They contain most of the important information you will need to be successful in your 12-week fitness journey.

And we invite you to join our private Facebook page for past and current First Striders. Ask to join (top right corner) and we'll approve your request. When posting on our private Facebook page, please avoid speaking about the miles/distance you went or time/how fast you ran, even if you know these stats. It can be discouraging to our less-fast beginners in comparison. Just announce that you did your homework (how you felt, where you were, aches & pains, friends). And share pictures!
