Announcing The Stick 21-Day Challenge

Our goal at Runners' Lounge is to connect runners with runners and also with useful running resources.  So we're excited to be working with our friends at The Stick to connect runners with this amazing device to support runners and to announce The Stick 21-Day Challenge.

The_stick_21_day_challenge What is The Stick 21-Day Challenge

Through our partnership with The Stick, The 21-Day Challenge is a chance for a group of runners to receive a free Stick, use it regularly for three weeks and to write about their results.  And we’re kicking it off at this year’s Chicago Marathon

The first round of participants in The Stick 21-Day Challenge will receive their free Stick at the expo at the Chicago Marathon.  Note: you do not need to be running the Chicago Marathon to be eligible to receive your Stick and participate in The Stick 21-Day Challenge. 

What is The Stick?

Pat_materna_3 Simply, The Stick is a non-electric self massage tool. The Stick is as simple as it is effective, involving only 30 to 60 seconds of use per muscle group.  An award-winning training tool, The Stick provides the runner with instant muscle therapy and a new understanding of the recovery of muscles.

Some of the more common conditions that The Stick effectively treats for runners are: IT Band symptoms, sore calves, achy quads, tight hamstrings, shin splints, and Achilles issues. By stimulating an immediate increase of blood flow to muscles, runners are able to recover much faster.  The Stick 21 Day Challenge is Runners' Lounge way of putting in your hands a training tool used by athletes of the US Olympic Training Centers. 

Plus it’s a lot better than using your kitchen rolling pin on your sweaty body.

How can I participate?

Simply send an e-mail to joinus@runnerslounge.com stating your interest in participating in The Stick 21-Day Challenge.  Be sure to tell us about your running—actively training, racing, or recovering?  Also mention if you’re dealing with any injuries, chronic tight areas, trouble spots for soreness, stiffness, etc, etc.  And let us know what results you hope using The Stick will produce for you.

Participants will be selected and announced on Friday, October 3rd.

What will I do?

At the Chicago Marathon Expo, participants will be personally fitted with the appropriate Stick model and provided a demonstration on the effective use of The Stick.  Then you’ll kick off your own 21-day routine of using the stick.  You’ll be asked to:

  • Join The 21-Day Stick Challenge Lounge Group forum
  • Write a "before" story describing your running in The 21-Day Stick Challenge Lounge Group
  • Post about using The Stick in the Lounge Group at least twice a week for three weeks
  • Post your "after" story and first-hand experiences about using the Stick related to your running, training, and recovery

Amy and I both own and use The Stick.  I reach for it to loosen legs after a long run or to freshen my legs before a hard run or race.  But more importantly, we want you to try it.  We believe that those participating and others following The Stick 21-Day Challenge will experience compelling results with their running! 

So let us know your interest in participating in The Stick 21-Day Challenge!

I have the Stick too, bought one at my last race expo...it seems to help from what I can tell.

danica

I used to have one, and lost it when I moved once, but I know the benefits, and would love to get another one.. Especially for free. :) Make a stick challenge out in CA!

Is there going to be a second trsil of "the Stick?" Perhaps the WDW marathon?!

Good Day I'm not a runner but as I'm on the ski patrol I ski very frequently and need my legs in condition before, durring and after the ski season. Your product would seem to be of great benifit for myself as well as others with similar activites. I'm currantly treating a sore shoulder and was interested in the us of a stick in that area. If at any time you would like to broaden the scope of your 21 day challenge skiier might be one area to explore. This year I promoted a streching program to our local ski patrol for before and after use. The use of your product might be a good follow up step.

The stick is very useful is getting the limbs ready for a long/ short run. It alsmost serves like a reminder system to the muscles to " Wake Up !!!!" Its tiime to get active !

Even in the cooling down after a long run, the stick is very useful.

I love running in the hot weather as long as I'm hydrated properly and have Sharkies with me. I may have to slow down my pace a little if it is a really long run, other than that keep your fluids up and wear a hat!
