Coach Will: Tempo Runs Part One - Aerobic Threshold


Tempo Runs Part One: ​Aerobic Threshold As runners we all hear these buzz words that are thrown around by our running companions. Things like tempo runs, lactate threshold, fartlek, max vO2, the list goes on and on. It can be a bit intimida...

Coach Will: The Wade Mountain Marathon & Half Marathon


What’s not to like about fall? I love that cool crisp air, constant crunching of the leaves under foot and the beautiful colors. Fall is my favorite time of year hands-down. As a coach, it’s a time of year when the “I told you so...

Coach Will: Blueprint To Qualifying For The Boston Marathon


Blueprint To Qualifying For The Boston Marathon The Boston Marathon- the name itself sends chills down our spines as every runner worships this race at the running alter. To put this race in perspective, out of every marathon finisher across the ...

Coach Will: In The Beginning...


Life can be funny sometimes. Often we think about the future and we picture ourselves in our dream job. To an engineer, that might mean working for a big company like Boeing. To another person, it may mean getting a nursing degree and working for ...

Coach Will: One Step At A Time


My last marathon was filled with mixed emotions. I ran a big negative split (1:24/1:19) to finish in 2:43:45 for a bright and shiny PR. During the hours that followed, I was on cloud 9 and itching to start the recovery process so I could focus on ...

Coach Myles: All Roads Lead to Cotton Row


It's time...Cotton Row time.  One week away from the biggest race in Alabama for a non-marathon guy like me.  For someone from Huntsville, this race represents a little bit of everything that the running community and even the city itsel...

Coach Myles: Knowing Your Body


Rule number one of competitive running is that somethings are going to be very uncomfortable.  The challenge is deciding when your muscles are just screaming because they’re tired of working so hard, and when there is something physic...

Coach Myles: Running Shoes


Sports can be expensive.  Thankfully running is not in that upper cost echelon, especially for frugal people (like me).  But as the cost of running shoes has gone up in the last decade, trying to stretch the dollar along all the miles we...

Coach Myles: Hydration in Hot Weather


Honing Your Hydration in Hot and Humid Habitats   There may be no more simultaneously disgusting and rewarding feeling in the world than finishing up a run when the heat index is in the triple digits.  The feeling of my running shorts dr...


I've been running since April of 2011, and I got into it mostly for weight loss purposes.  I quickly realized that I loved running and became interested in getting better and setting goals.  Each season brings different challenges, and I like being coached by people that coach me based on my personal goals, rather than a generic website that makes us all one type of runner.  RunningLane is perfect for runners seeking specific training tailored to their own personal goals.
