“Pulling 41 seconds off in a month feels pretty awesome (7:58 to 7:17). Thanks to Sheri and Teresa, for all of the information, the inspiration, and most of all, the inclination to get out there on those early mornings. (yawn)” — Recent Program Graduate, Amy A, CA
“I ran a 9:21 mile, a 9 second improvement but felt smoother less winded then in beginning of challenge. Then replicated the same 9:20ish mile in a 5 mile race a few days later for a PB. For my 53-year-old legs I was surprised. I guess I worked the schedule better than I thought! Thanks Sheri Matthews and Teresa Marie Howes running whisperers!” –Recent Program Graduate, Beth P, CA
