Heros Run 5k

4th place 5k finish for Tim!

Tim lined up at the Gloucester City 5k called Heros to Heroes 5k.  He is in good shape and over the next 4 weeks, he’s ready to line up for 4 races.  Some at 5k and some at 10k.  But first, he ran Heros and here’s how it went.

I went out a little too fast this time around.  I never ran the course and heard the first mile was a little tough and didn’t take that into consideration.  Also, it was…

Camden County Meet

Fast running for Coach Marc’s HS team

The Haddon Heights Garnets lined up for the County Meet – the meet we host.  And came away with some great performances, despite having tired legs from their hard workout on Tuesday.

Our #1 runner ran the same time as the week before.  Our # 2-4, 6-9, 11, 12, 14 runners all set lifetime PR’s.  That means, that out of 14 runners I had racing at the Camden County meet, 11 set or tied season or…

LBI 18 Miler Success by Rachelle

Find a good tune up race to prepare for your marathon

We are still new working together, but I already see this as a very productive runner/coach relationship.  Rachelle is preparing for the Richmond Marathon, and so she set her trial run of the LBI 18 miler as a good tune up for the big day.

We had talked about easing into the race and getting faster as the miles clicked off.  It was a sound strategy for that long of a race and for still getting…

Top 15 at Hartford Half Marathon

Watches sometimes lie; run by effort and feel instead.

Alex has been running really well since his early days working with Coach Marc and this weekend proved why the 100 mile weeks he’s run have all been worth it.  Despite being sick (what’s up with Alex’s luck and big races?!), he ran a superb half marathon and finished in 12th place in a stacked Hartford Half Marathon.

Not only did Alex best his old PR he’s also within 1 second of cracking 70…

Bemidji Long Distance Race

Running requires accountability. If you can’t do it yourself, hire a coach.

Runners hire coaches for a variety of reasons.  One of the big reasons is accountability.  It’s HARD to get out the door every day without any true direction.  Throw in adverse conditions and it makes it even tougher.  But a coach can provide that extra push that a runner needs to set PR’s. 

So far, that’s the case for TrainWithMarc’s new runner, Glenda.  She’s just getting started with Coach…

Parx Casino 5k

Ever race in pouring rain? Tim just did!

In lots of rain and not the best course conditions, Tim ran most of the Parx Casino 5k race by himself.  Here is what he said about the race:

“Today’s race was tough given the wet weather, about half the course was on grass or turf so it was a lot harder than usual.  Believe it or not, I busted out my track spikes.  I looked like an idiot at first, but had great traction on the last mile of the…

How to Run at Your Potential

Qualities of a successful runner: consistency and positive vibes.

My high school team just got back from Holmdel Park in Holmdel, NJ – where they ran at the Shore Coaches Invitational.  This is our state meet course and we typically race on the course 3 times a year – Shore Coaches, States, and hopefully the Meet of Champions.


As is always the case, I expect good results from my runners – I don’t coach expecting mediocre results – but as of…
