I’m very excited to announce that HillRunner.com will be partnering with the Amica Insurance Seattle Marathon to provide their runners with the opportunity to receive personalized training plans or online coaching.
Seattle Marathoners will have the opportunity to sign up for the full service online coaching that is available to everyone at HillRunner.com or a streamlined "Plan Builder" option for those who want some help designing a training plan but don’t want the constant contact and monitoring that comes with the standard coaching service.
Not only is this a great opportunity for both myself and Seattle Marathoners, though. There will also be some exciting new services available to everyone! Beginning in April, I will be participating in Twitter Chats hosted by the Seattle Marathon. Beginning in May, we will begin hosting Google Hangouts, which will be archived for after the fact viewing/listening on YouTube and likely iTunes. While we may do some Google Hangouts just for those who sign up for the coaching service, we will also be doing some that will be available to the public!
It’s possible as we build our partnership that more services will be added as we explore all options to connect with both Seattle Marathoners and the greater running community.
I’m very excited for these great opportunities and honored that the Seattle Marathon Association has chosen me to partner with them to offer these services. I hope you will check out the new offerings that will be coming thanks to our partnership. I’ll be sure to keep everyone updated as we begin scheduling chats and hangouts.
