Over this Thanksgiving holiday, I am excited to announce I will be doing Pay It Forward for 2013 again! Last year, I had an overwhelming response to this offer and realized how many athletes are out there that have overcome some type of hardship and really wanted to get some specific coaching help but were not able to for various reasons.
If you are interested, I encourage you to apply. Here are the details:
1.) Applicants can apply via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org from December 1st – December 15th 11:59pm CST. Feel free to be as creative as you want in the email application.
2.) Please only apply if you have struggled or overcome any type of hardship: financial, health, personal, etc.
3.) You cannot currently be a coached athlete of any type (effective 1/1). I do not want to “break up” any good coaching relationships!
4.) You CAN re-apply if you applied last year!
5.) You need to have at least one “A” race in 2013. Can be any significant race, but we need to have goals for 2013. All levels of athletes are fine.
6.) The coaching will start January 1, 2013 and last until the end of your “A” race or 12/31/13, whichever one is first.
7.) You will have to blog about your experience and be an active member of social media (FB or Twitter)
This year, the 2012 Pay It Forward winner, Cathy Bonich had a great year finishing with a super Ironman Wisconsin race! Cathy keeps a blog – you can find it on my blogroll if you want to read about her experience.
I encourage you all to apply, if interested. If you have any questions, please feel free to reply to this blog or send me an email. I will announce the winner before January 1st, 2013. Looking forward to another great year of paying it forward to our great sport!
