Each runner has different talents, abilities and needs. As coaches and as a program, we do our best to individualize training to help each person reach their potential as a runner.  That said, there are many training principles and techniques that science and experience have shown consistently maximize a runner’s results.  Below are some training resources we recommend and implement in our program. As always, if you have any questions or concerns please contact one of the coaches.
