In August of 2004 I joined Phoenix Fit. At that time the longest distances under my belt were 10k runs. I have always been a runner, a casual runner. To this day I am not in love with the sport. Since joining Phoenix Fit , I have learned to enjoy (not love) running. I have completed 10 Marathons, over 25 Half Marathons, a few Triathlons  and numerous 10k, 5k runs. I started as a Full Marathon coach with Phoenix Fit 13 years ago. I am over 60 years old now and coach Half Marathon distances. I found out a long time ago that covering distances is easier when you run and converse with others. Before you know it the distance is accomplished.
