You are more than a runner. You are a friend, a sister, a mother, an aunt, a daughter, a career-driven woman, the CEO of the home, and the solver of all the problems. You are a full, 360-degree female athlete, and running is the lens with which you view the world.
Running frees us to challenge the status quo. We can set bold goals and go for PRs, but there is more beyond the race. Running empowers us and helps us lift up others by honoring who we are.
What 360 YOU Is
360 YOU is a new program for Women’s Running members that will help you find your power as a woman and as a runner.
Each quarter, we’ll be partnering with pro athletes turned pro mentors to go on a journey together.
The 360 YOU program is an opportunity to grow both as an athlete and a woman. This unique program, led by a professional athlete, is all about you—and is included as part of your subscription to Women’s Running.
Collaborating with some of the most inspiring women in running each quarter, the 360 YOU program will provide training motivation, life lessons, and advice on topics the guest athlete is most passionate about. We’ll deliver new, exclusive content every week.
Every three months, a different pro athlete will share not only their training expertise, but what ignites them as women, the pillars that guide their life journey, and what drives them to make change in the world.
You will learn about more than running. You will be inspired to become the best version of yourself—and engage with a community of other female runners who will lift each other up.
Introducing Our First Pro Mentor: Mary Cain
Mary Cain is perhaps best known for her bombshell revelations about emotional abuse in the sport, but she’s so much more: community manager at Tracksmith, coach for New York Road Runners, Atalanta NYC CEO. And now, she’s 360 YOU’s first pro mentor. Cain wants to fix the sport for female runners everywhere, including helping you uncover your true potential as both an athlete and a woman. Over the next three months, we’ll train, learn, and share together.
This quarter, we’re focused on the 5K, and training for a 5K is all about trusting the process.
For beginners or those coming back from time off, the goal is to take your training day by day and patiently watch your finish line fitness emerge. We have a plan dialed in for that success.
For those seeking to PR, the 360 YOU intermediate plan will help embolden your training with speed and cross-training.
360 YOU will also look at all aspects of how to be a strong athlete. Physical and mental preparation are equally important: Pre-hab is as important as the training itself, and getting into the right mindset is where the shift forward happens.
During her three months heading 360 YOU, Mary Cain and her Atalanta NYC athletes will help you get strong and stay healthy.
Let’s Run Together on March 8
During this quarter of 360 YOU, we challenge you to run a 5K. Let’s own that distance on International Women’s Day by
dedicating a 5K run to a woman in your life. Choose someone who has influenced your journey or inspired you to think bold.
When we celebrate other women, we are building a sisterhood of respect, honor, and solidarity. So come join us—Mary Cain and the Women’s Running team—on March 8th and run the miles for those we admire.
Share your run on Instagram with #WR360YOU and #InternationalWomensDay and spread the love on March 8th.
