That is where Walter came in. The first time we ran together I had to stop after 2.37 miles which took me 30+ minutes to do. I was exhausted and discouraged. Even though I had a lot of work to do, Walter had faith that I could reach my goal of running the 5K and he even thought I could run it well. For the next 4 weeks, Walter provided me with a training plan and supported me through it. I went from hating to run to running in the rain. I finished the race in under 27 minutes and didn’t take one break. I accomplished my goal. Thanks Walter for the constant support and encouragement! You made it feel easy. And I have continued to run post-race, which I never thought would happen!

I had a month before my first 5K race and had not ran more than a mile for years. I didn’t know where to begin. And I hated running.
