I was looking for a good running group when I found out about Mile to Marathon. I had found groups that were too fast, and too slow, but was still trying to find that “just right” group. My first run with the group I was welcomed by Ron, and all the team members. We ran from Punch Pizza and I actually had people to run with me! It was a relief! I couldn’t believe how welcoming everyone was, and how it was less about how fast you were running but the conversations you have and getting time on your feet. I signed up pretty much right away, and the rest is history! I am so grateful for a group like Mile to Marathon. I no longer dread my weekend long runs, well usually, since I have such a fun group to run with. It helps to know when I am struggling to get up and run that once I get to the meeting spot I know the group will be there and support each other. I was able to PR by about 15 minutes on both my marathon and half marathon, but the thing that makes the most difference is that I can guarantee there will be someone dressed in MTM gear on the side of the course cheering me on at pretty much every race. I know Ron will push me when I need to be pushed, but is also aware that we are all human and miss workouts every once in a while. I was out of the country for two weeks in the height of my marathon training last summer, but was still able to PR despite that. Overall, Mile to Marathon is a fantastic group to be a part of and I am lucky to be a part of it!
