What is RunningLane?

Here at RunningLane, our training philosophy is that mileage builds champions.  We also believe that it is more important to train smart rather than to simply train hard. Every detail of your training should have a purpose. That is why we’re here.

Success is measured by two things: meeting your goals, and the quality of the journey you take along the way. We have always questioned what training methods make a successful athlete. We pour over every available training book as well as any other running philosophy available, in search of the best ideas on how to improve in a safe and clean manner.  From years of study we have formed our own system – based on the trials of others and the lessons of our own experiences.

To be specific, most of our training is rooted in the Lydiard fundamentals with a mixture of Renato Canova and Jack Daniels inspired speed work.  We do not believe in one perfect system.  Instead, we believe that successful training programs are ones that are created for the individual, using a collaboration of many different training philosophies.  In order to succeed a close bond with the individual is absolutely necessary!  We believe in an individualized approach to training, based on the strengths and weaknesses of the single athlete, and allowing for a constant evolution of the plan.

 We cannot say this enough: Nobody ever achieved their greatest potential by following any cookie-cutter program.  That’s why we are so passionate about providing one-on-one coaching with your individual strengths and needs in mind.  Success sprouts from a commitment and is fed by communication and motivation.

If you want to work with us, we pledge our commitment to helping you succeed.

If this time last year someone would have said to me, "By April 2016 you'll have run 3 5Ks and will be running 15 miles every week (and enjoying it!)," I'd have laughed and made a joke about being chased by a scary clown. But, here I am, just finished my 3rd 5K with a time a little bit better than the last.  I'm really glad RunningLane encourages beginners. As someone who has never run or even been very athletic, it's nice to have guidance and a place to get my questions answered. Big thanks to my coach, Michael for setting me up with a program that I can stick with and challenges me.  My program is just that…mine.  It is tailored to my fitness level and ability and having someone to check in with each week keeps me accountable. It’s working!  In 14 weeks with my coach and RunningLane my BMI has dropped 5 points, my cholesterol went from over 200 to 165, and my resting heart rate has lowered because my heart is healthier and happier!  Thank you, RunningLane!
