Fleet Feet Coeur d’Alene’s Winter Warriors 21-22
“There’s no such thing as bad weather, just soft people.” -- Bill Bowerman
Winter Warriors is Fleet Feet Coeur d’Alene’s free run/walk program to help keep you moving and motivated through the winter season. In Winter Warriors you get points for every workout you attend -- in person or virtually -- and accumulated points add up to prizes.
Winter Warriors runs from Nov. 24 to Feb. 25. We meet in person Wednesdays at 5:30 p.m. and Saturdays at 7:30 a.m. at McEuen Park by the fountain near the Fourth Street entrance to the park. You may participate virtually via fitvil.com and the Fitvil app. Headlamps or flashlights and reflective clothing/gear are strongly encouraged for the evening outings. In Winter Warriors it doesn’t matter how fast or far we go, just that we get out and do something! Our only rules are to be encouraging and supportive of others, and No Whining About the Weather!
To participate in the programs and earn WW points, Winter Warriors must set up a free Fitvil account at www.fitvil.com and join Fleet Feet Coeur d’Alene Winter Warriors 21-22. Initial setup is done best by desktop computer, but the Fitvil app can be downloaded to your phone and used for easy checking in and out of workouts.
We have in-person routes planned for each outing, but all of them can be customized to individual distance/time preferences. You can also check in via Fitvil during the appropriate time window and do your own thing at your own place and time.
Routes are typically short loops (do multiple if you want!) or out-and-back courses on neighborhood streets or the Centennial Trail designed to keep folks in contact with each other whether they are going long or short. Our loops are typically about 1.4 to 2 miles each.
Warriors Winter prizes are awarded for every 50 points accumulated. Each outing earns 10 points. There are 25 Winter Warrior meetings total (no WW on 12/25 or 1/1), so there are a total of 250 points possible. Prizes are pulled from the Fleet Feet CDA SWAG boxes and generally are nifty little running-related items like buffs, knit gloves, key rings, etc. They’re intended to be fun little incentives/rewards for getting out there. There will also be a Thursday raffle drawn from the previous Saturday and Wednesday Winter Warriors logins in Fitvil.
Note: Fitvil is the only way we will track Winter Warrior points this season, so be sure you check in and out of the workouts!
