Diane completed her first marathon this fall at the Chicago Marathon in a time of 4:30.  She had all but given up on her dream of running a marathon 20 years ago due to injury, but her training with us allowed her to reach her goal.  Diane says ” “I never gave up on my dream but thanks to Laurie’s help I was able to finally reach my goals and feel like a champion.”  Read more about Diane’s journey here.

Catherine set a Personal Record in the Half-Marathon at the Naperville Half-Marathon.  Catherine said “It’s all from your training!”

Peter K. completed his first 5K this fall with his daughters.  Peter says “I couldn’t even walk around the block without being in pain and now I am running some. My daughters and I did the Color Vibe 5K, and while my time was a little slower than I had hoped, the point is that I did it and that would not have been possible if I had not spent time training with you.”

P.J. completed 2 triathlons this fall, overcoming injury issues with our training help.

Jerry completed several 5K and 8K races this year – his first races ever at the age of 68 – after training with us this year.  Read about his journey here.

I can’t wait to see what these clients, as well as all of our new ones, do in 2015!
