“I loved this program – it completely reframed how I thought about running.” -Jus’ Beginning Participant

“Rachel and Whitney were positive, full of knowledge, cheered us on, and took the time to learn our names and get to know a little bit about each of us. I always felt welcome and looked forward to attending.”
