Training Philosophy

  • Our goal is to build each runner through strength based workouts, build confidence, enhance each runners strengths, improve multiple areas for growth,.  To do so, we focus on manageable, yet effect mileage, sharpening every tool in a runner's shed, quantity miles vs. quantity miles, and effort based running.  Through effort based running, we promote the ability to learn the limits of our bodies, while reducing the pressure of statistics due to limitations and expectations they may bring.   We strive to be an empowering, encouraging positive, and honest voice to help each runner achieve their goals.     

  • Our cornerstones are: 

    • Effort based running 

    • Long runs

    • Progression runs (snowballs)

    • Hill work

    • Quality runs vs quantity runs

    • Weekly consistency
