Two themes that guide us:


Shalane Flanagan, first American woman to win NYC Marathon in 40 years:

“My training is always enhanced when I share it”

The best way to help the team is to be your individual best.

Workouts alone are always more difficult.

Being at practice is important for both you and your teammates.

Honor your commitment to something bigger than yourself.


Desi Linden, first American woman to win Boston Marathon in 33 years:

“Keep Showing Up”

Running is hard.

Consistency is key.

June, July and August are important.

Have patience.

You get out what you put in.

Guaranteed improvement with effort and time.
