We are very excited to announce that the FFCrew will be opening a limited number of new spots on Thursday, December 3 at 8 am CST. Spots will remain open until Midnight on Friday, December 4, or until we have reached capacity. Get on the ‘first to know’ email list here.
Since introducing the FFCrew last fall, the response has been overwhelmingly positive and we continue to hear from women from all over the country and world who are interested in joining. We launched it last year as a way to grow the Fellow Flowers movement but more so, for women within our community to connect and support one another. We have back-of-the-packers, first-place finishers and everything in between. We have newbies, veterans, 5Kers and Ironman finishers. We have all ages, demographics, motivations and we represent nearly corner of the country, with some international support as well. We are as diverse as they come, each woman bringing with her a story all her own.
Our disclaimer: This is not your average running group. We’ve found that for ourselves and for many women we know, running is an entry point, a catalyst, and a gateway to discover our best selves and true potential. We are women who run, but we are also women who dream, laugh, love and crave deep connection. Running is a commonality, but it is our stories that unite us.
Last year, we were focused on building the membership infrastructure of the FFCrew and determining if a model like this would work. (Um, it did. Big time.) This upcoming year, we’ll be focused on building regional/local groups and meet-ups, and our FFCrew women will be the leadership behind this exciting endeavor.
Your annual membership fee is $129. Beyond the time, care, organization and planning of our team throughout the year, this fee includes:
– FFCrew technical tee or tank (three versatile options to choose from)
– FFCrew trucker hat
– FFCrew Sweatyband headband
– A special care package including temporary tattoos, decals and print
– Year-round Flower It Forward pricing (50% off all flowers)
– Year-round option of using either FREE SHIPPING on orders over $25 OR 10% off your entire purchase.
– Access to the FFCrew Facebook community
– 15% off all virtual runs (for you and your friends)
– Special perks, discounts, giveaways throughout the year
In addition to these awesome perks, we’re also very excited to expand the available learning opportunities for you as well. Here’s what you can expect:
– Online workshops on personal development, goal setting, nutrition, training, etc.
– FFCrew interviews and discussions – Tori + Mel will bring in guest speakers and content experts on a variety of topics throughout the year.
– FFCrew bookclub (our last book was Brene Brown’s Rising Strong and it was amazing!)
Here are a few upfront things to consider.
We truly believe you drive this experience. You can choose to share, step in and participate more often or hang back, soak in the positivity and enjoy the support if that’s more your thing. Many women live somewhere right in the middle of these options. But (ahem) it will be what you make of it.
Please keep in mind that a large majority of our conversation happens via our closed Facebook group, ZOOM online meet-ups and when possible, in-person events.
Don’t do it just for the swag and discounts. Please. If you try to equate the price of your annual membership with the discounts and perks, you will always come up short because you’re putting a price tag on the wrong value. Do it for the connection and inclusive space to share your story and be inspired by the stories of the incredible women around you. Do it for the learning, laughter and validation that you aren’t alone in your journey. It’s about the miles and moments of transformation – the swag, sweet deals and perks are the cherry on top.

The last step – if you are interested in joining, be sure to get on our First To Know email list. This will ensure you get the registration link and have everything you need to sign up. We do expect spots to fill up very quickly.
Our FFCrew ladies are excited to welcome you, and we are too.
