First of all, yes you can.
Second of all, you’ll love it.
Now, what am I talking about? At the midyear meetings just like many other conferences and conventions, there are REALTORS® willing to get up before daylight to run and walk and exercise together before meetings start. Today, for example, we had a group that included Florida, Massachusetts, California, Washington, Illinois, and North Carolina!
It can feel overwhelming at meetings, to actually get to know someone in the crush and rush from meeting to meeting. Spend a little time outside together and you’ll find those connections that make REALTOR® life so meaningful. I personally didn’t know what I was missing until I got disciplined about making myself get up and go outside (no matter how late I was up the night before).
We’ll meet most mornings this week, and I can tell you, it’s just priceless to build the relationships and learn from the best in a different environment.
Boston is going to bring us a great opportunity not just to run or walk, but to create a huge single-day fundraiser for the REALTORS® Relief Foundation (RRF)! We’re going to have the REALTOR® 5k, and you WANT to be involved! Walk it, run it, spectate it, or just sign up and sleep in – we don’t judge! The registration fees will be donated to the RRF and also to some local Boston non-profits. REALTORS® really make a huge difference when we hit the streets! Go to ReliefRun.Realtor to sign up. There are tons of teams if you want to join your state or your friends (mine is the Blazing REALTORS® if you want to join us), or just be on your own! You’ll get a shirt and hat and that most important runner thing….BLING. Sign up today!
You want to get started with us? You want to be ready when we do more at the REALTORS® Conference & Expo in Boston? Look up any of the myriad Couch-to-5k programs and apps (affectionately known as C25K), and start a plan. Join the Facebook group REALTOR® Runners and Walkers, for support and conversation (and you never know-referrals too!).
Can’t wait to see you out there!
