Our 2019 Speed and Strength program is currently underway.  This popular program includes weekly Sunday morning group runs at the track at Richard Montgomery High School in Rockville.  It’s not too late to join us! Click here for more information and to register, or email us at with questions. Here’s what one current participant had to say about this program:

“Though I’m not new to running, this is my first experience participating in a program with running in person coaches (I’ve participated in virtual programs).  Running has mostly been a solitary and learn as I go kind of activity.  For months before starting your program, I’ve had annoying tightness and pain in my left hip and left arch that no amount of stretching and yoga seemed to resolve.  The pain never stopped me from being active, it was just a price to pay for the endorphins and knowledge that I put in a good workout.

I started to notice this week or maybe last week that I no longer had the left foot and hip pain.  In fact, I used to have the nagging hip pain just from walking my dog a few blocks.  And I don’t have it anymore.
Was it the extra strength workouts?  Was it the correction to my running form (which I have been more mindful of lately)?  Nothing but this program changed in my routine. 
This program far exceeded my expectations.  I’ve learned so much.  And I really thought it was a waste of time to even try to get faster given my age (now I know better).  You guys are amazing coaches.”
