NOBO Spring 2014

Latest News: We will be meeting on Monday evenings at 6pm at the Goodman Community Center at 149 Waubesa St, Madison.  It is a beautiful historical building that provides myriad fitness and community classes to the east side of Madison and is conveniently located along the Capital City Trail. We will also be donating $2 from every registration from Spring 2014 NOBO to help support the GCC. Tell your friends who have been wanting an east side location for NOBO, that we’ve been listening and it has arrived!

Join Fleet Feet Sports Madison and New Balance to walk or run your first 5K. The class focuses on beginners, but all levels of walkers and runners are welcome. The class is structured to help you cross the finish line of your first 5K in less than three months. The training class sets reasonable goals within an encouraging environment, using a specific training program, skilled coaches, seminars, earned rewards, and group practices to keep the spark of motivation burning. No Boundaries is a class where you can challenge yourself physically and mentally with the support of peers doing the same thing, mentors who have already been through the process, and coaches who are trained and skilled to answer your questions. There are three levels of intensity: walk, walk/run, and run, so you will be able to find your own pace.  There is a place here for you, no matter what your pace may be!

*NEW LOCATION!  For those of you who are repeat NOBOers, our familiar haunts of Wednesday nights at the store and Saturday mornings at Pheasant Branch Conservancy will remain the same…but for 2014, we will be adding an east side location on Monday nights, meeting at the Goodman Community Center!

Goal Race: Susan G. Komen 5K on Saturday, May 31, 2014. *Race entry into Susan G. Komen is not included in the training program registration.
Program Duration: March 5, 2014 – June 1, 2014
Program Kick-Off:  Wednesday, March 5, 2014 at 7:30pm. This first meeting will be informational.  We will run through safety concerns and requirements, program details and discuss how we can help meet your training needs this season.  It is also an excellent opportunity to meet your fellow training buddies, mentors and coaches.  This will be a NOBO Nation event – with all of those participating in No Boundaries Spring 2014 (east side and west side) in attendance.
Practices: Coached and mentored group workouts 2x/week. Choose the most convenient weekday location/day for you and we’ll see everyone on Saturday morning!
NOBO East Practice: Monday evenings at 6pm at Goodman Community Center, 149 Waubesa Street Madison
NOBO West Practice: Wednesday evenings at 6pm at Fleet Feet Sports Madison
Pub Run Make-Up Practice: Pub Runs on Thursday evenings at 6pm at various revolving west side & east side locations.  Locations are listed here.  Please keep in mind that these runs are independent "fun runs" and "staff-led," not mentored.   Come with your watch and your own workout to follow and stay for the munchies afterwards!  It's always fun to bring friends, too!  Let Coach Flo that you're planning on going and introduce yourself to the staff member who is leading the run or run/walk.
NOBO Nation Practice: Both east & west side NOBO groups join together on Saturday mornings at 8am in Middleton’s scenic Pheasant Branch Conservancy.
