I wanted to run a 5k for my 50th birthday.  I signed up for The Running Well Store’s Couch to 5k program expecting weekly group runs and community.  Then Covid arrived.  TRWS did an excellent job of pivoting and revamping their program to meet the new normal.  Coach Mike coordinated twice-weekly video calls, which served as excellent education sessions.  They also allowed ample time for the group to get to know each other, albeit virtually.  Coach Mike provided extensive training resources and we received real-time coaching and support via the Strava App. Our training culminated with Coach Mike mapping out a socially distanced version of the Hospital Hill race that let the group safely meet in-person. Having such a comprehensive running foundation has allowed me to run without injury, learning stretching and rolling techniques and make life-long friends along the way.  Quite a testament – especially in the mist of a pandemic! Thanks Coach Mike and The Running Well Store!
