A while back I put up a post in another forum asking about mentors for newbies.<br><br>
I got a PM from someone yesterday who would like to be a mentor. I'm wondering if anyone here would like to do the same?<br><br>
I'm also wondering if anyone here has the time / energy to maybe help spearhead this effort?<br><br>
I'll cross-post to the Race and Starting Gate fora...

I would definitely do it for one or for a group...like have a thread where someone is the "coach" and the group can check in and stuff....is that the idea? Or is the idea to be behind PM, email, etc.?

Whatever works for the mentor or mentee. (Is that even a word?)<br><br>
Some people like coaching, others just having a shoulder to vent on. I'm going to set up a post where mentors / mentees can check in.

love the idea--will look for the thread to sign up....<br><br>
just an idea---but maybe the mentors can post their desired "specialty" like if they want to coach people training for 5Ks, 10Ks, HM, M or even Tris?
