3 months with runcoach and look at me now!

3 months with runcoach and look at me now!

This spring, on the advice of my sister, I read the Daniels’ Running Formula. It was a really good read, and I learned a lot about howto run from reading it. Before this point, all I was doing when I went out was aimlessly killing myself. I would run a couple times a week if that, doing 10 miles on a good week.
