Welcome to Raleigh Galloway!
HALF AND FULL MARATHON TRAINING

2020 Winter/ Spring Session

We are undergoing highly unusual circumstances that we must all cope with  before returning  to our normal lives. The problem is no one knows when that will happen. At this point it appears ALL races in the coming months are cancelled.  

 

Here's our Raleigh Galloway Plan:

 

  1. Our March and April  group runs are temporarily suspended. We are exploring VIRTUAL options for our May 30th, 2020. Summer Kick-off with Jeff Galloway.  

  2. These are times when the health and safety of you and your loved ones are of maximum importance.  I am not going to try to rehash what you already know and understand about the Corona Virus but I will a few thoughts. 

  3. Tips for getting through this:

    • When possible, stay at home. When in public, maintain social distance of at least 6 feet from others. 

    • Clean, clean, clean. Disinfect everything you come into contact with on a daily basis. A solution of water with a few tablespoons of household bleach is great except on fabrics.

    • Since the virus can exist of surfaces, be especially caution when using gas pumps, credit card machines, door handles and shopping carts. I carry disposable vinyl gloves everywhere I go.

    • Exercise, whether it be in the safety of your home, in your neighborhoods or at our greenways and parks. Be sure to maintain 'SOCIAL DISTANCE". 

    • If you are sick, please SELF ISOLATE. 

    • If you are handy, build something, sew something, fix something. 

  4. Maintain your fitness through running, biking or home workouts. 

    • Running: Our members can choose to run on their own or independently with their team members. These runs can be organized by team leaders or members.  The numbers of runners should not exceed 10 members, always maintaining social distance. Some of our groups maintain Facebook pages which you follow.    If you need to contact your team leaders, their email addresses are posted in the Members Only tab of our web site. The password is "runwalk".  Reach out to me if you need to contact one of our members and I'll assist.

    • Biking is a great exercise and maintaining social distance is fairly easy.  

    • Home Workouts: Treadmills, weights, resistance are all options. My wife completed an instructor led  Burn Bootcamp workout at 6 am this morning on her I-pad. The YMCA is preparing workouts via Facebook and there are lots of options on YouTube. Or dust off that Jane Fonda workout tape. Just DO SOMETHING! You'll feel better and be less stressed from looking at your 401K. 

  5. The Memorial for Maureen Bowen has been postponed along with all group gatherings as mandated by good common sense and Governor Cooper.  When things settle, our Raleigh Galloway Team with honor Maureen's and Bob Myers'  lives in a special way.

  6. Getting philosophical. I feel very strongly that everything happens for a reason.  It's up to each of us to make something positive from this. The importance of family, the beauty of spending more time with loved ones and  pets is what I appreciate. Don't take your good health for granted. Support local businesses and thank the employees that are working through this while at risk for contagion.
