We started out in Minneapolis. We love the mini-apple. What we aren’t so keen on there? The winter weather. It’s so cold that Minnesotans have put pedestrian tunnels between buildings. You don’t want to run outside in Minneapolis. Sometimes, coach had us running on treadmills by November. That’s where it all began. Our treadmill reviews contain honest advice from one trainee to another. If a track doesn’t work for intense training, we’ll tell you. If a treadmill costs too much, we’ll tell you that too.

In April 2002, I crossed the finish line of my first ever race huffing and puffing. It took me 2:17 to run that hilly half marathon course and I am sure there was some cursing along the way, but mostly there was tremendous, overwhelming pride. Years and thousands of miles later, that same pride is what gets me out the door for runs from 3 to 26.2 miles. Running now is a place of peace for me to solve the problems of the day, outline new story ideas and ponder big dreams. It’s often on my runs that I come up with new ideas to help my cadets overcome IT Band issues or avoid runners’ trots! So I think it’s fair to say that my training greatly benefits them. Coaching runners was a natural progression of using my personal passion and the online challenges I host through www.RunToTheFinish.com.
