Group Training

Spring 2017

Greetings All. Please know that I will not be hosting adult training groups this spring. My friends at Fleet Feet Sports - West Lafayette will be hosting both 5K & half marathon training groups aimed towards spring races events. 

I am still offering individualized training for distances up to and including the marathon. So, if you are ready for the next stage of your training, the individualized attention you just can't get in a group setting, call or email me and we'll get started.
