“I joined RWM back in 2008 because I wanted to run a Marathon and training alone I could never get myself out the door or go for runs more than 4-5 miles. Five years later I've completed that Marathon and countless half marathons with the help of the Spring Marathon training class and encouragement of the coaches and other runners. The biggest benefit of the club though has been all the great people I've met that I can now call my best running friends.”
