“I had the privilege of attending Lora’s Beginner Running Class and just wanted to share how wonderful the experience was! I’ve always struggled with running and I need all the help I can get! I learned so much from these two classes, I had to bring a notebook to the second class to write everything down! She taught us some really helpful exercises to make our form more efficient and make running easier and then let us try the techniques and *what* a difference they make! Running felt faster and easier with just a few adjustments to my form! I really enjoyed how Lora takes an all-encompassing approach to her running coaching. We not only talked about running technique, but also about nutrition, hydration, heart rate training, stretching, recovery, and the different types of workouts runners need. I realized that I’ve been missing out on a lot of improvements by not mixing up my runs and always doing the same pace and distance, and this class has helped me formulate a good training plan to improve my running endurance and pace. But what I enjoyed the most is that Lora is very straight-forward, yet very encouraging and positive at the same time! She is *extremely* knowledgeable about all aspects of running and triathlon and she speaks from personal experience, which is the most valuable credential a coach can have! I would highly recommend this class to anyone who is just getting started with running, or even if you’ve been running for a while but can’t seem to get faster or improve your endurance. As Lora says, “You don’t know what you don’t know.” “ ~ Megan Burt, Running Class Participant Sept. 2012
