It's time for the...

2015 Fitness Coach

Marathon Challenge!

A note from Alan Blond, the founder of The Fitness Coach in West Sand Lake, NY:

Tomorrow, June 19th Sue and I and Samantha and Drew will be celebrating our 5 year anniversary of

the day Astana became our special and wonderful addition to our family. Obviously it is a day we will never forget, we consider it as our Christmas, a day

we received the most precious gift of all.

So it is with great enthusiasm and determnation that

I announce that the 2015 Fitness Coach Marathon Challenge is officially underway. The goal is to get as many of you involved as possible to raise money for orphans, babies, birthmothers and adoptive families. Our marathon team will be running the Niagara Falls Marathon on October 25th. This marathon is very cool as it will start in the United States and end in Canada at Niagara Falls. We already have 3 runners committed and would love some more to join us.

Please give it some thought as it is a way to motivate yourself and raise money for a great cause at the

same time. I will assist anyone in their training

if you accept the challenge.


AND SUPPORT OUR CAUSE- The concept behind the Fitness Coach Marathon Challenge is simple-

get out and move, challenge yourself, and to help us raise money. You can register for any event with us

or in your own area. It can be a 5k, 10k, half- marathon or a full marathon. Challenge yourself, commit and become part of our team. Here locally,

we are now preparing for the Saratoga 5k and half- marathon on July 12th. Please consider joining

many of your Fitness Coach friends and participate.

There is still time to train and to raise money.
PLEASE consider participating in the 2015 Fitness Coach Marathon Challenge. If you do, I promise

you will never feel better doing something so rewarding. Please feel free to contact me at if you would like more information, or if you have any questions.
