Coach Dan, I’d like to thank you and all the other coaches. Just such a great group of wonderful people. I truly love West Coast Road Runners, the members, the coaches, and all the support from everyone. Thank you for everything you do!
Hi Coach Dan, Just have to share a new PR with you! Finally, I broke through the 2:30 barrier and made a 2:29 at the Hollywood Half this past weekend! Thank you so much for having put together such a positive and motivating group of people. When I was heading full speed ahead to the finish, I heard the announcer give a big shout out to West Coast Road Runners and I flew across to the finish! I don’t think my feet touched the ground!
Coaches, I just wanted to thank you for your support out there on the course yesterday. You were exactly what I needed at exactly the right time with exactly the perfect words. And even though I couldn’t respond, I listened to every word you said and those words kept me going when I wanted to stop. So, thank you, thank you, thank you for keeping me going. I appreciated it more than you know. Your training program prepared me to run the full marathon with the confidence that I would PR today, and I did!
Coach Dan, I didn’t want to miss the chance to tell you and my coaches how much my first season with WCRR has meant to me. I showed up every Saturday morning and with each step, gained strength & confidence. My family, friends & co-workers started to notice a transformation in me. I am definitely not the same person that showed up at orientation 5 months ago and I proved it by completing my first half marathon yesterday in 3 hours, 16 minutes and 29 seconds and who was beside me, my coach!
Thanks for everything this season! I honestly could’ve never accomplished running my first marathon under 3:35 without being a part of West Coast Road Runners this season. I’m thankful for all of the Saturday long runs with good company and wcrr aid stations, all the experience and running and nutrition tips from the coaches, the seminars, and all of the support on race day! I learned a lot from this season and I couldn’t be happier with the results of my first marathon with a Boston Qualifier!! I’m looking forward to this next season!
Dan, Thanks so much for the training, it made the Rock n Roll Half Marathon easy for me to run the in 2:05! YAY!!
When I signed up only 5-6 weeks ago, My goal was to merely finish the 13.1 miles. Now I am encouraged to decrease my time and continue training.
It’s amazing that only 6 months ago I was a morbidly obese lifeless couch potato! This week I accomplished the unheard task of finishing a half marathon! WOW!
Thanks for the great coaching and motivating spirit! West Coast Road Runners program has been an essential tool for my training and my success.
Coach, as a member of West Coast Road Runners for more than 10 seasons, I’m happy to say, the program always works. I ran RnR San Diego in 5:36. Thanks!
