FAST Seeks Interested Runners for Upcoming Season
FAST – The Foothills Acceleration and Sports Training team – are looking for interested runners in Ahwatukee. The fall group running sessions are starting soon, and residents find that it is a great way to train together and enjoy each other’s company.
According to Ahwatukee Foothills news, FAST’s run group has been a part of the community for the past 10 years, and usually has about 60 to 100 runners each year. FAST Program Director Jeff Bloom said the running group was for both intermediate and advance runners who were interested in getting into shape while having fun.
Besides just getting some good exercise in, there is a chance to socialize with others that have the same goals in mind.
“We do happy hours every three to four weeks where we all get together to go out for drinks and food,” Bloom said in the article. “There are a lot of social aspects to it besides showing up and running.”
The 2014-15 running group includes a 21-week training program with weekly group runs on Saturdays, weekly speed workouts on Tuesdays, and one free group fitness class each week, according to a statement from FAST.
Located at 15410 S. Mountain Parkway, Suite 112, the cost is $175 to join. For more information on FAST, call 480-704-8700 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
