What Participants Are Saying About Our Training Programs:

“I just want to say thank you SO much to Marcia for leading the Fleet Feet training program. She was absolutely awesome and an inspiration and a source of encouragement for me. She is obviously extremely knowledgeable and she made it very easy. I hope to join another group in the future – as long as MARCIA IS THE ONE LEADING IT! Please also thank my pacer for me. She stuck with my slow pace and encouraged me several times when I was SO ready to quit! She’s a most dedicated pacer! Thanks to all of you at Fleet Feet! You have a customer for life!”

- Grace U.

“The Fleet Feet half marathon training program has been worth every penny. I love running with the group- they push me to go further and faster.  The part I love most about the Fleet Feet training program is the clarity of information and instructions. Not only are we learning that we should do certain things (nutrition, stretching, etc.) but we are learning why and how. I am learning so much and it is definitely helping my running.”

- Monique W.

“This is the first time, of several attempts, that I feel like I will truly be able to run an entire 5K. Without Marcia’s and the pacers’ help, my goal would not have been so close. I am thoroughly enjoying the training sessions through Fleet Feet and find myself wanting to put my shoes on and run now.
Thanks to Fleet Feet, Marcia, and the pacers for the encouragement and support.  Even 60-year-olds can start running!”
-Leanna C.

“Thanks Marcia for helping me achieve my goal for the half marathon. I can’t wait to train with you and Fleet Feet again!! :)”- Emily H.

“It wasn’t all that long ago that I was working my way up to three miles myself. Now in less than a year’s time, I’ve run two 5k races, a 10k, and 2 half marathons. Not too bad for someone who swore up and down she could never do it. I still need motivation sometimes, too, but I think it would be great to be a part of a group again and try to give back a little what you and the pacers of our Greenline group gave me. Still can’t believe I’ll be on the other side this time! – Leslie V. (Went from a participant to a pacer!)

“Marcia’s plan has been extremely helpful and I really don’t think I could do it on my own. The plan lets me quit while thinking I could do more which makes me look forward to the next run.” – Lori F.
 “I feel better about my running now than I have in the past when I’ve prepared for 1/2 marathons on my own. I’m definitely running at a faster pace, with fewer walk breaks with the group/pacers than when I was training on my own.” – Leigh P.
“I have enjoyed this running program and group so much that I for sure want to come back and train for St. Jude half marathon. I like being held accountable for a run and being pushed to go further and do better and having someone to talk to while I run!” – Kristin M.

I have been plagued with foot and shin pain in athletics my whole life. Today I was helped by a nice young lady that put a pair of shoes on my feet that neither hurt my feet nor my shins. This was a first. I didn’t know it was possible. Thank you so much!!!

Hey James!

Thank you so very much for your feedback. I have already passed on your compliments to that nice young lady (Marcia). Enjoy your new kicks and your now pain free athletics!

Carry on,

Do you help just runners or can you also help a tennis player with ankle tendon and bursa problems find the right shoes and/or insert? Thanks.

To All Fleet Feet Staff:

I really enjoyed the half marathon (Greenline) training program! Greenline Half Marathon was great (Oct 14, 2013). I am looking forward to St. Jude in Dec 2012.

Be Blessed,
