After a twenty-year hiatus from marathon training, I joined Bay Area Fit in the summer of 2016 to meet other runners and experience the camaraderie that comes from training with friends. The next thing I knew I was signed up for the 2017 Houston-Chevron marathon.
What I found with Bay Area Fit is a group of very nice people who share a passion around running and improving their fitness. I enjoy the conversations and mutual support on the long runs and the ability to meet with other runners during the week for other training distances. In addition to their training plan and organization, Bay Area Fit provides me with the discipline to get some core exercise and stretching every week along with a forum to learn about nutrition and advice from individuals who have run Boston and other marathons around the world.
I succeeded in running the 2017 Houston-Chevron race, took close to an hour off my time earlier this year at the 2018 race and I am entered in the New York City Marathon in November and the 2019 Chevron Marathon.
Running and exercising is much more enjoyable when done with a group. We have recruited a great group of coaches for the red group to help you achieve goals that you may not think possible.
Come and experience the ‘esprit de corps’ that is Bay Area Fit.
