St. Augustine Galloway Running Group will be starting a truly Beginner 5K Program


As simple as running may be, it certainly isn’t easy. Especially when you’re a beginner. That’s why, with Jeff Galloway Run/Walk/Run, which has been around since the 70’s, will take all the guess work out and truly make it less intimidating too. The program will take you from your very first steps to stepping up for your first 5K race the Bridge of Lions 5K.


Are you ready to begin your new journey? Meet Heather, She is an amazing Women with a lot of heart and passion for helping everyone in the program achieve their goals.

Heather Proffitt Bio: I was bitten by the running love bug when I was a child. I was a swimmer, my swim coach made us run throughout the week to make us have stronger legs which helped with swimming. I ran 5K's as a child and won trophies in my age group. I could run a 5K in 23 minutes Oh what I would give to run that fast now, but that has always stuck with me.I got back into running 6 years ago, a friend of the family introduced the Galloway method to me and I loved it. It definitely makes running less intimidating.I joined the Galloway running group in August 2016. I ran my 1st half marathon last December 2016, and ran my 1st marathon in March 2108.Time truly does fly when you are running with friends. The other reason I really enjoy running with the Galloway group is its safer to run in a group so that you don't have to worry about roosters chasing you. Yes, I have been attacked by a rooster!
