Past participants’ testimonies:
“I really appreciate ROCO-I did it for the first time last year and I lost 42 lbs. Running has been about the only thing that has helped me loose significant amounts of weight. I have been able to keep it off and am glad that the program is still going. I don’t care if I get a shirt or not I just like going and running with the group. I have kids and sometime have to be gone for their things but the most important thing that ROCO has done for me is it has taught me how to condition my body and increase my endurance. I do like to run but it is much more fun with the big group. Less reason to talk myself out of going.”
“This was my first session to attend. I managed to get my husband to sign up as well. ROCO has given us a common ground and something for the both of us to look forward to every week. Even though we ran in different groups it gave us a common interest and something to do together. I have always been envious of others who ran. ROCO has given me the confidence to run my first 5k and soon my first 10k!”
“RoCo Fit has been great for me this fall. I have never been involved in any kind of run/walk group but always wanted to be. When I heard about RoCo Fit, I was so excited! I had tried running on my own before, but I never stuck with it. When it got too hard, I would just give up. This program has been so helpful to me. I have made friends in this group and we each push each other and encourage each other to hang in there when it gets hard and you want to give up. I have a great time and so look forward to Tuesdays and Thursdays. I’m sad to see it come to an end, but I will definitely be back in the spring!”
“Even though I only completed 8 weeks this session. I am 100% sure my walking/running SO improved my recovery after surgery. It has made me an even further believer in being an exerciser for life. I was able to walk a mile within 1 1/2 weeks of surgery ( not very fast of course) I am now up to a mile and a half and I am getting a little faster. I am SO thankful for this program! See you in the Spring!”
