Head Coach – Red and Green Groups
After a twenty-year hiatus from marathon training, I joined Bay Area Fit (BAF) in the summer of 2016 to meet other runners and experience the comradery that comes from training with friends. The next thing I knew I was signed up for the 2017 Houston-Chevron marathon. Joining BAF that summer was one of the best things I have done this decade.
What I found with Bay Area Fit is a group of very nice people who share a passion around running, improving their fitness and improving themselves. 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.
Since joining BAF I have run the Houston Chevron marathon in 2017, 2018 and 2019 along with the New York City marathon in 2018. My finish time has improved with each race. Running and exercising is much more enjoyable when done with a group. We have a great group of seasoned coaches to help you achieve goals that you may not think possible.
Come and experience the ‘esprit de corps’ that is Bay Area Fit.
