Run Wild Missoula Beginning Running and Fitness Class

Starts Feb 2, 2008,
RWM Beginning Running & Fitness Group will meet twice a week for six weeks, Wednesdays 5:30-6:30 pm and Saturdays 9-10 am. Meet downtown at Missoula School of Massage, 135 E. Main.

Two fabulous instructors: Jenny Newton & Kendra Borgmann

Kendra Borgmann has pretty much always loved running, beginning with trying to "beat the boys" in spur-of-the-moment playground sprints.
However, she understands that some people actually hate running, and feels that usually it is because they are not assisted through the first, most difficult phases of getting used to it, after which the rewards make it self-fulfilling. A few years ago, Kendra began running ultra-marathons, from 50 kilometers to 50 miles in distance.
To date she has run 16 ultras, placing first in 7 of them. As she nears 40 years of age and feels the effects of high mileage more acutely, and also as a necessity for being able to run on trail for long distances, Kendra has learned a great deal about the importance of "preventative maintenance," nutrition, strength, stretching, and cross-training. Kendra met Jenny after (unsuccessfully) trying to chase her down at the Pengelly Double Dip this summer and their ensuing training partnership has reminded her how important it is to have someone else encouraging and challenging you to do your best. She looks forward to this opportunity to get people as excited about increasing their fitness as she and Jenny are.

Jenny Newton grew up in Wyoming and Montana and earned a bachelor's degree in biology and a master's degree in bioengineering from the University of Wyoming. While at the University of Wyoming she started mountain bike racing and Nordic skiing. She did not have an immediate love for running, in fact, she thought it was hard and painful and would only do it as a way to help keep her in shape for other sports.
Upon moving to Missoula she started running with a group at work during lunch break and realized that running not only didn't have to be painful but could actually be fun! She also realized what a difference it made having a positive group of people to encourage her and get her out the door! She was so inspired that she started a Wellness program at work to help motivate others towards fun, healthy living. She is looking forward to working with Kendra to continue guiding people towards their health and fitness goals."

This course is geared toward anyone seeking guidance, structure, and inspiration to gain fitness. Let us help you follow through with your New Year's resolutions!

NEW Run Wild Missoula Sponsor: The Montana School of Massage

Run Wild Missoula is proud to announce the Montana School of Massage as a sponsor of Run Wild Missoula and will be helping promote all our club races and events.

Joe Beatty has been a competitive runner for more than 30 years and, for the last eight months, the owner of the Montana School of Massage on 131 East Main Street in Missoula.
Thanks to Joe’s generosity, we can now store RWM & Missoula Marathon equipment in his basement and meet there for our new RWM club yoga classes, Tuesday Track (a warm place to dress in cold weather), and for other club activities that require an indoor space.

Joe and his staff run a professional school with a comprehensive 650‐hour massage therapy program for students and, for the general public, a range of massage services that includes Swedish, relaxation, deep tissue, pregnancy, chair, and sports injury and prevention. For relieving stress, reducing blood pressure, promoting faster healing of muscle strains, increasing blood circulation, easing the symptoms of arthritis, and increasing endorphins (the body╩╣s natural pain killers), massage is remarkably effective.
The rates are reasonable, gift certificates are available, and we can all look forward to a warm and welcoming space. Next time you stop by the Montana School of Massage to work out
the kinks, be sure to say “thanks!” to Joe and his staff.
