I'd like to start a runner's group

Actually, not necessarily a runner's group but a non-runner's group that wants to run. Makes sense? After successfully running a 5k and consistently working on my running regime, I think it would be great for me to take the things I've learned as a personal trainer, a Zumba Fitness instructor, a Couch to 5k grad and a motivator and help others who aren't as motivated to do it themselves. I don't want to charge. I'd just like to get a committed group of 3 - 5 people who were like me - either attempted running with no success or have never attempted at all. Together, we'd start from scratch, work on our running, and in turn receive fitness advice and healthy living advice from me. I am thinking the group would have to run in the morning together or after work.

It will help me continue learning and running and teaching which I love to do. I became motivated about this after teaching a Zumba Fitness class filled with newbies. It was a challenge for me to find modifications "on the spot" and to avoid scaring the living day lights out of everyone. It was a challenge but I did it and I think I can do this for other forms of exercise.

So what do you think? Have you ever organized a group of people to exercise with you? Would you join me? Send me a comment or email me (funfitchicblog {at} gmail.com). I'm looking to do this with a group from Westchester because it would help my commute. I know there are running groups out there already and I'm not trying to compete, actually it would be great if participants from my little group would then decide to join larger groups after they got their feet moving. I'd like to work with BEGINNERS.
