Win a running makeover with Coach Julia

Are you stuck in a running rut?
Are you training hard… but not seeing the improvements you want?

An Up & Running makeover could be just the ticket!

Read on for how you could win 3 months coaching with Julia…

When I was a young teenager in the 70’s I was a magazine addict. Each month I’d eagerly await the latest issues of my favourites to hit the newsstand. It wasn’t so much about the information within but a desperate hope that someone would write about a magic formula to help me through my teen years unscathed.

Glamour magazine from the 1970s

Looking at those cover lines it’s clear not much has changed in forty years!

My favourite feature in Glamour (and later in Shape) was the makeover. Whether it was a clothing or diet I’d study every detail of what they’d done to the lucky reader, choosing which changes to replicate. I’d reinvent my dinner menu or experiment with a new exercise. In hindsight I was studying for my future career!

Runners are always asking me what they can do to improve. Sometimes they say they’ve tried everything, other times they say they’ve no idea where to start. Introducing… The Up & Running Makeover!

We’re looking for a runner who’s red hot ready
to revamp their running routine.

Could it be you?

Everyone is welcome to apply – it doesn’t matter what speed or distance you run, or whether you’re a beginner or seasoned runner. You only need:

  • a strong desire to shake up your running
  • to be committed to three months of training.

For the lucky makeover-ee (!) you’ll receive three months of online coaching with me, Julia Jones. I’ll take you by the hand and guide you towards your makeover goal, with:

  • 3 months of training plans, tailored to tackle your running goal
  • an initial Skype chat with me, so I can get to know you and your goals
  • email support whenever you need it!

As with Shape or Glamour, we’ll also check in with the lucky runner each month by means of a short and sweet email interview which will be posted here on the blog. Yes, revitalised running and fame awaits you! 😉

Are you ready for a running makeover? To apply just fill in the form after the jump to tell us all about yourself and your running aspirations. Entries close 7AM GMT on Wednesday 4 March. Bring it on!

Update: Thank you for all your applications! We’re writing back to you all in the coming days.
