Welcome to your place for all things modern and savvy and movement! What started out as, “hey, I’m going to do this virtual run club, anyone want to join?” during early part of the quarantine (does March 2020 feel like three years ago or what?) has morphed into something much more……
Welcome to Modern Savvy Moves!
Movement — of your body and your mind — is transformative and vital, particularly during what has been a season more challenging than perhaps many of us have lived through before. We are being tested, and yet, we have so much opportunity. I see it, and I hope you do as well.
In running and in life, I believe it is this simple: show up, just start by putting one foot in front of another… and cheer on other women along the way.
Every month, we do the MODERN SAVVY RUN AND WALK CLUB (details below), and this is the spot with the scoop on all upcoming virtual events, Instagram or Facebook Lives, etc. So far, we’ve done workouts, stretching sessions, learned about our pelvic health, and there’s more on the horizon. Everything is currently saved as IGTV videos on my Instagram page (@themodernsavvy).
Use #MODERNSAVVYMOVES and #MODERNSAVVYRUNCLUB to support each other. Connecting virtually with hundreds of new friends and hearing how this community and the motivation to just get up and move at whatever pace works for you has filled my heart with such joy and hope during a really challenging season in my life, and in the world.
So…. JOIN US….
HOW TO SIGN UP FOR THE MODERN SAVVY RUN/WALK CLUB (30 sec):
1. Download the Nike Run Club app (it’s free)
2. Request me as a friend (Alyson Seligman)
3. I’ll accept you and then request you to join the Modern Savvy run club challenge
4. You can find the challenge on the bottom right of the app, second from the right (the people icon). Once you’ve been added, you can invite and add your friends to join.
That’s it – you’re in! Each month we set a miles goal, November 2020 being 35. That might sound easy or daunting. Don’t let it deter you. WE MEET YOU WHERE YOU ARE AND CELEBRATE WHAT YOU CAN DO. This is not a competition, it’s a community. I only ask that you push yourself and prove to yourself that you can, that you are strong, and that you are capable. If you wind up walking five miles that you wouldn’t have, that’s a victory.
