Climbing the Ladder Part IV: Unbridled Success

Climbing the Ladder Part IV: Unbridled Success

 When I passed mile marker one at 6 minutes and 50 seconds, feeling strong, I knew that I was well positioned to meet my goal.  As the pack thinned in the succeeding miles, I concentrated on my form.  On the climbs, I could hear in my head the familiar refrain from Formula: "knees up, toes up."

As I was improving my strength and endurance, their guidance in the classes made me realize that I also needed to work on my form and my focus. Within one month I was participating in up to 5 classes each week. 4 months later I feel like I've gone back to the person I was years ago, when running and exercise made me feel confident, fit, and energized rather than exhausted and unhealthy.

Hey gang!

If you've been to one of our classes, you know we aim to improve your strength, stamina, and function while having some fun along the way.

It only took a few steps on the Woodway to convince me that it was not your ordinary treadmill. It is nice to be able to do speed work in a controlled and predictable environment . . . I was impressed that the Woodway provides a much gentler impact than any other medium I have run on, including my preferred surface, dirt.  That seems particularly beneficial when ramping up the speed.

 I know what it takes help someone get fit, I understand what is necessary to work towards that end in a manner that will minimize the risk of injury, and I believe in the model we have established to provide an ideal balance of cardiovascular work with a functional strength foundation that leads to overall fitness.  While I have stepped away from the collegiate setting, I will always be a coach and I look forward to working with all those aspiring to better themselves - young or old, elite or novice.

Moving to Charlottesville has definitely helped me discover a love for training again; we have the best places to run and I have made so many new friends through running. Jason pushed me to sign up for the 10 Miler and I'm so glad he did.

“I’m not a runner.”  Ann always laughs when she hears me say this, because she knows better.  Everyone who wants to be a runner, can be…with some training!  Under Ann’s guidance, I successfully elevated my ‘shedding for the wedding’ goal into something much greater.
