For the past 10 years, my husband, Tim Marr, and I have focused on our personal sporting aspirations through triathlons and running. We had a blast, with wonderful encouragement from coaches, sponsors, family and friends. Last year, we felt that it was time to give back to the community that has supported us immensely.
With that in mind, we linked up with Lanikai Juice, a company that shares our passion for health and wellness. A few meetings with the owner, Pablo Gonzalez, confirmed that we truly had a mutual fervor. Together, we created a free, weekly, community run club that supports all levels and abilities. Watching the Run Club grow from ten to thirty weekly runners in each location has been amazing.
We expect our community reach to grow even more now, as we have joined forces with the Honolulu Marathon Association, an organization that encourages people from across the globe to live their dream of crossing the 26.2-mile finish line in our beautiful Hawaii. This partnership with Honolulu Marathon will allow each run club to have two awesome coaches in every session, so we can offer our best service to every participant.
Developing the Lanikai Juice Run Club has fulfilled our dream of connecting with the community through our shared passion to live a mindful, fun and active lifestyle. It is easy for anyone to join the club. You don’t need to sign up in advance. Just show up at one of the four Lanikai Juice locations, ready for a lighthearted (yet challenging) workout. Also at the end of each run, Lanikai Juice hands out smoothie samples and hosts a raffle with Lanikai Juice gift cards and other prizes.
Pretty sweet, right? Oh, and again: it is free! So, come run with us.
We looking forward to running, walking and (most importantly) having a fun time with you!
some dreams are worth sharing…
