 What Participants Are Saying

"First of all, thanks for coming out to support us on race day. It was really encouraging to see you cheering us on. I really needed it on the last mile too. Secondly, thanks for the past few months. This program was pretty much exactly what I was hoping for. I'm so glad I joined. You guys did a great job. I loved your enthusiasm." - Brian L. 2013 Fall Half Marathon Participant

"Thanks for another great training program. I did well by my personal standards. I am finally below the 11 minute mile mark! Thank you again for your programs. You guys are awesome coaches. I can't believe I have improved from a 12:48 minute mile when I ran the Long Branch half marathon in 2012 before joining the half marathon training program that fall for Philly half marathon where I ran 11:21 minute miles. Then, I joined the spring half marathon training program, 2 speed training programs, and this fall half marathon training program.  My pace dropped to 11:13 minute per mile at the Staten Island half marathon and then 10:49 at Trenton! This may be slow for my age level but my legs have become stronger. I am proud to say I am 44 and a mother of 2 boys and was never a runner." - Doinks, 2013 Fall Half Marathon Training Program

"I never thought I would run a half marathon. Never. I was "satisfied with running 3 miles each time I went out. Then one day I had a friend who talked me into doing a half marathon. I had no clue how I was going to do it until I saw a flyer for this training program at Fleet Feet. I didn't know a soul when I started but by the time I was done I came away with a great group of friends, tons of knowledge, and the ability to RUN 13.1 MILES WITHOUT STOPPING!! Definitely worth it. Thanks Fleet Feet!!!" - Tanya Marks, 2011 Spring Half Marathon Training
