Hello and welcome to the 1st year Runnerversary Quest week 1.
It is hard to believe that it is a year since I started running these quests. I remember putting the post up and wondering if anyone wanted to join me.
I am so lucky that you all still like to come and play every six weeks. Its great to have everyone joined together for their own personal quest. Every time I start a new quest I always have the initial thought "what if nobody joins" but you have never let me down and I thank you so much for that.
It been great to see everyone go through their own personal journey and reach the goals you have set yourselves. It is sad when we hear of injuries but it has been better to go through them with the support of the others. I know we have a couple of long term injuries that are healing and I have no doubt that those members are still looking in even though they are not signed up just yet. I like the fact a bad run or a bad week is swept away and forgotten as it should be with the help of the other questers and accomplishments are acknowledged and praised.
I love the fact that this is not a competitive thing and its all about support, It wouldn't be like that without you all.
I know you all thank me for running these but it is me that would like to thank each and everyone one of you for making it work the way it does
THANK YOU. RFC X
What the quest is:-
The quest takes six weeks. You can join any time within that six weeks.
The main aim of the quest is to help you find a focus or goal that you would like to achieve by the end of the Quest period.
I ask that you will be a graduate or about to graduate to join the quest. The main reason I ask this is that while you are doing the program your plan is very structured so I wouldn't want the quest to interfere with that.
Most popular goals are:-
To run three times a week
To slowly increase distance
To train for a specific race
To add In Stretch and strength exercises
As you can see they are personal to yourself and it's totally your own choice.
Every week I will pin a new post where all the members of the quest can talk about how things are going.
So if you wanted to join all you have to do is put
I would like to join the quest, or count me in and then I would like to. ..............
Your name will then be added to the top post and every week your name will be in the quest until the end.
At the end, only for those that would like to, we each put out longest run of the quest and it is then marked on a virtual run we are doing from John O Groats to Lands End.
Then it all starts again for another six week Quest.
