Socially Motivated Wellness has been in process for many years. Without realizing it, a seed was planted in Kokomo Indiana in 1985 with a group of runners who met very early every morning at the Kokomo YMCA for a group run. Many thanks to Dave, Bruce, Dan, the Judge, Ron, Lynn, Paul and Jim, my first group of running partners who taught me that it is always better to run in a group than alone. You don’t have to train alone either… we’re here to help you find a group of runners or walkers who will motivate you to achieve your goals.

Here at Socially Motivated Wellness we are motivated by our core values. These are the things we hold dear and allow to guide our lives.  These six values drive our business.

With over 25 years of running experience including college track, 1 ultra marathon, 8 marathons, countless half marathons, 10k’s and 5k’s, we can help you reach your goals. Anyone can be a runner or a walker. We can help you discover goals and cheer you on to cross the finish line!

What will you find here?

  • Group running and walking interval training programs
  • Program lengths range from 6 to 24 weeks
  • Race-specific programs including 5k, 10k, half marathons and full marathons
