I am excited to announce I will be doing Pay It Forward for 2017 again! I have thoroughly enjoyed working with the past winners: Dan M, Cathy B, Courtney, Alisa D, Jeff Vanis & Nicole H.
2017 will be my 7th year Paying it Forward with a new athlete.
If you are interested, I encourage you to apply. Here are the details:
1.) Applicants can apply via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org December 1st – December 15th at 11:59pm CST. Feel free to be as creative as you want in the email application.
2.) For the Pay it Forward Athlete, I am looking for athletes that have overcome any type of hardship – This can include , but not limited to: illnesses, financial or personal issues. This is also open to athletes who may not have any hardships but just have not been able to put together a solid year (s) of training due to inconsistency, lack of motivation, lack of focus/structure and need something new and challenging.
3.) You CAN re-apply if you applied before! I encourage it! Jeff applied three times and was finally picked last year.
4.) You need to have at least one “A” race in 2017. Can be any significant race, but we need to have goals for 2017. All levels of athletes are welcome!
5.) The coaching will start in January, 2017 and last until the end of your “A” race or 12/31/17, whichever one is first.
6.) You will have to blog about your experience and be an active member of social media (FB ,Twitter and Instagram if you have it).
I encourage you all to apply. If you have any questions, please feel free to reply to this blog or send me an email. I will announce the winner by Christmas, 12/25/16!
Looking forward to another great year of paying it forward to our great sport!
