Plan Description

Imagine seeing the finish line up ahead, the clock time still starts with 01 and you KNOW this time, you’ll absolutely cross before it has a chance to switch over to 02.

Even better you’re smiling, nothing hurts and you already want to do it again. That’s the power of a good training plan. Don’t finish your next race wishing you’d had all the information you need to crack that PR goal.

In my second race post knee surgery, I cracked the Sub Two Hour half marathon again. I am NOT a naturally fast runner. I am NOT the runner putting in massive mileage. I am NOT the runner who will hurl at the track to get results.

You don’t need to be either!! Be consistent. Follow the plan. Believe it works.

There is no magic number that makes you a real runner, but there is something satisfying about breaking what once seemed like a big barrier and for many runners that’s going from a 2 to 1 in their finishing time.

I provided thousands of articles on RTTF with running tips, but this is designed to save you the time of digging through them for the keys you need to see a 01 on the clock as you burst through the finish line.

Save time. Get focused. Nail the run.

Run To The Finish

Over 25,000 miles run and I still LOVE this sport. I love researching all the details to help you cross the finish line injury free and having enjoyed the journey. I work with new and intermediate runners looking to finish that first marathon, run:walking your first race, the sub two half marathon or figuring out Low Heart Rate Training.

I have a clear love of pizza, which I think is part of a good running routine. It's about having fun and finding the joy...trails, friends, pizza.
