I signed up to run a marathon as a charity runner for Chicago Marathon through my college, committing to fundraise for pediatric oncology with the celebration being to run 26.2 miles I had no idea what I was actually getting myself into. I ran my first half marathon that spring with 0 training while fundraising for my big race.

Ran my first race (10k) with my now husband and mother in law with zero training and during the heat of Atlanta summers. I actually thought I was going to die. I couldn't walk for a few days, but I kept thinking about how much fun I had.
At Strides for Strength...
→ We help athletes who are somewhat experienced runners and have attempted some shorter distances but have plateaued and want to focus on getting faster or increasing distance.
→ We keep a close relationship with all of our athletes because we want them to feel like they can share their goals no matter how big, small or scary they might seem.
→ We give constructive criticism knowing that we want our athletes to succeed.
→ We work with dedicated, driven, hard-working athletes who are willing to put in the work to make their goals happen.
→ We know life gets busy and schedules get full so we always make sure our athletes' training plan compliments their everyday life instead of burning them out.
