Finally have the date that the group classes will start.
Monday January 28th. Parkside Place in North Wales/Upper Gwynedd Township park. we will meet by the swimming pool in the parking lot (in the back passed the police station). The classes will last until April 18th (Thursday before Easter). New classes will form again after that in May.
There will be four evenings that you can choose from. Monday through Thursday. Each evening you can pick which time you want to join the group. The choices will be 4pm, 5pm, 6pm. You may stay for the next group if you start with one of the earlier groups.
Each runner signed up can pick up to two evenings and yes you can pick different times for each. I really don’t mind if you run all four evenings, I just wanted to let you know that you are entitled to two group sessions for your $75.
Any level of runner is welcome. I’ve trained beginners and Boston Marathoners.
The only thing I ask is for you to let me know which days and times you are coming by the Friday preceding the week. So for January 28th, please contact me by Friday the 25th. There will be days that I will be unavailable like February 6th and 7th, but you all can still meet if you’d like or come on Monday and Tuesday of that week.
I also still have a couple of slots available for one on one training, the cost for that depends on how long you want the training for. One on one runners are allowed to run with the group training runners as a member of Run Your Best Race. I expect a wide variety of pace levels so you will usually find someone your speed to run with. I will be telling you what speed I want you to run so I can help match you up.
If you haven’t already signed up, please do so as soon as possible. Use the contact me tab above or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Tell me that you want either the group classes or one on one. Payment is easy, you can use PayPal also on the purchase training tab above. You can use a credit card or a bank card on PayPal. Other options are cash or check. Let’s get this party started and have a great Spring Race season.

St. Luke’s Half Marathon runners! Here’s your chance to join a group training program, by a certified running coach and personal trainer, that will include a weekly training plan plus a weekly group run, which will include training on the actual St. Luke’s course periodically.
I hope to be able to train on the course every other week, but we will have a group run every week somewhere. Once we see who is signed up for training, I will determine the group run locations.
If you are training for another race with a race date close to St. Luke’s, feel free to join us anyway. Or contact me to set up your training for your particular race.
If you remember from OctoHalf, 100% of the runners training with my program set a new PR.
The cost for this 12 week group program which starts on Saturday January 28th is only $75. Contact me either by email at email@example.com or click on the Contact Me tab above!
Run Your Best Race had a successful day at the Philly Marathon yesterday. All 5 runners who trained for this race through Run Your Best Race nailed it. 5 Personal Bests for the marathon! And not by a few seconds, either! The runners shaved off from 10 minutes to over an hour from their best marathon times. One runner ran her first marathon ever and the others were veterans, having run at least 4 marathons each in the past.
In addition one runner qualified for the Boston Marathon for the first time! Run Your Best Race is going back to Boston!
If you’re keeping score, that’s 27 runners in a row who’ve trained under me and PR’d in a Half or Full Marathon! I seem to get the best runners! What a year 2016 has been for us!
Contact me! I’d love for you to be next!
October 2nd was a great day for running. The OctoHalf training group had a very successful race. Five runners new to the half marathon distance all finished.
Ten of our runners ran their fastest half marathon ever (out of 10 = 100%)! Two runners beat their personal best by 20 minutes or more, two ran over 10 minutes faster and a couple more 9 minutes faster!
The reason for this success? They put the work in. I hope my training had something to do with it but the runners had to run it, I didn’t run for them.
Most of these runners mentioned they want to continue with the Run Your Best Race training. Come join the fun! Contact me! I train you for any reason. I’m also a Certified Personal Trainer so I can help you with your fitness goals as well.
Are you happy with your current condition of health? Do you worry about not being able to take care of yourself or your family because you might develop a chronic illness? Did you know that daily living activities are limited for at least 25% of those diagnosed with a chronic health condition?
Chronic health conditions also account for over 70% of deaths in the United States. Cardiovascular disease is a leading cause. Associated many times with cardiovascular disease is obesity and being overweight. This causes other conditions such as high cholesterol, diabetes, osteoarthritis, some types of cancer, shortened life expectancy, and a decreased quality of life.
Why are more Americans overweight or suffering from some chronic illness? Advanced technology is a leading cause. Addiction to TV programs, video games, and leisure time on computers cause us to sit idle more than ever. Our posture suffers from sitting so much causing low back pain. 80% of us suffer from low back pain in our lives.
It’s also important to stay healthy even if you are already in top shape.
So how do we reverse this trend and get or stay healthy? Nutrition is important. Getting outside and exercising is also critical.
Running is one of the best and easiest means of using the outdoors to get or stay fit. Running, easy? Sure if you learn how to correctly. Allow me to show you how!
OK, you already work hard at fitness and you already run. Has anyone ever showed you the best way to train? Do you sign up for races so that you have a goal and continue to run? Would you like to get better at running? Would you be happier if you did get better at running? If you are like me, when I’m happy it spreads to everyone around me or anyone who comes in contact with me. I’m much more positive, feel better, have more energy, and people talk to me back in a more positive manner.
Running can change your life! That’s not an exaggeration. Ask anyone who had the courage to make the move and start running. I’ve lost count on how many people have told me that running changed their life. It lowered their blood pressure, made them happy again, made them more self confident, raised their self-esteem, made their relationships better, and so many other positive comments.
Then I hear the excuses. I can’t run because my knees are bad or I don’t want to ruin my knees. Running correctly helps your knees! Fact! Or the big one, I don’t have time! Wow, I cringe at that one the most. Yes, we lead busy lives. You have 4 small children and your spouse is always working late or out of town on business, or I don’t have a spouse so who will watch my children? I work long hours then have to go home and feed everyone and it’s dark out when I possibly could work out.
To this I just say, “Where are your priorities?” Is your life not important? Would your family suffer from you being chronically ill, disabled, or worse, gone? Have you ever flown on an airplane somewhere? I’m betting a vast majority of you have. When you start to pull away from the gate, the flight attendant goes through their safety speech as required by law. What do they say? One thing is , “if we suddenly lose air pressure the oxygen masks will automatically drop. If you are travelling with small children, put your mask on first, then assist them.” Why? Because if you pass out you can’t help them! The same goes with the rest of your life, not just in an airplane. If you don’t take care of yourself, how can you help someone else?
Learn how to run the right way! Whether it’s to start running and get healthy, improve your running, or to become really good at running. I’m your man! I can change your life! You don’t even have to live by me. I can help you no matter where you live in the world! Ask anyone who has worked with me before. Your life should be the highest priority! Improve the quality of your life. Smile again! Feel great about yourself! Contact me! firstname.lastname@example.org
