And the Winning Continues

And the Winning Continues for Rob

Rob loves to race.  I’ve found that to be true since we started working together a few months back.  And what makes racing even sweeter is winning.  A few weeks back, Rob won his first 5k with TrainWithMarc as his coach, and now he adds his 2nd win.  Below, find what he had to say about the race.

Don’t Get Race Anxious

Use these tips to overcome race day anxiety.

I have a few HS athletes who are going through a bit of a mental rut.  They are training at a really high level, but can’t seem to put it together when the races come around.  So I did a bit of research and found a few articles that I thought I’d share about how to relieve race-day anxiety.

Here’s what I want to point out to them and I know that all runners can benefit from these pointers:

Treadman Duathlon

Treadman Duathlon proves successful for Tina

Tina ran an interesting relay race this weekend – she ran 2 legs of 3.3 miles and her teammate biked 21.6 miles.  While she can’t find official results for the teams she had a very good performance.

I believe I ran the first 3.3 in 28 minutes, which didn’t break my PR, but did match it!  So, I’m happy with that because I haven’t matched that PR since 2007!  The second 3.3 I was not as…

Philly Half Marathon - 5k with Bernard Lagat and Tim!

2014 Philly Rock n Roll 5000
What Tim failed to mention, and I had to look up the results, was that Tim was 6th overall in a STACKED 5k.  First three placers are NCAA Champions and Olympians.  Here’s what Tim said about the race: “Race went great today, weather was perfect and had just the right competition to run a great time.  Hung on to the leaders the first mile and paced with them (not the elites), had to catch them…

Why I Coach

Why I love coaching runners

photo (26)

This is exactly why I coach runners:

“I can’t believe it! My pace is actually consistently improving—at the start I’d have faster days followed by way slower days, etc.
This morning, my roommate told me he had to kick it into another gear when running with me last night, so I checked my pace (started tracking using an app bc I kept forgetting to look at my watch)—and it’s improving!!!!

I wanted…
