    Hi, I am new to this group and to meetup in general. I have been wanting to run a Half Marathon for while I am hoping this would be the first step in making it a reality. Is there an assessment I could do to see if I'll be ready for the Half Marathon by June? I would like to sign up; however, I am not sure if the meetup dates would be compatible with my schedules. Roughly what are the meetup days and times?

    Welcome newcomers to Go WOW!

    On Saturday we'll take as much time as we need to answer ALL your questions and give you ALL the information you need to start training with us.

    We will go over training day-by-day and piece by piece so that you understand how it all fits together - the terminology, (run/walk, tempo runs, injuries, etc.), the training programs (beginner and intermediate), and any other questions you have. You will also be able to sign up on Saturday if you are not a member yet.

    I'm looking forward to meeting you!

    Coach Stephanie
