Walk – to – Run program, Taylor TX

I recently had one of my athletes ask if I was going to do any coaching out here near the new house (Taylor). Initially I wasn’t, cuz most people don’t start running in the Summer – especially here in TX.

But then I thought, what if I start w those that want to “Walk-to-Run” – learn good technique walking, build your endurance there, and then start running as you’re ready, as you see fit, maybe even as it cools down in the Fall. A whole lotta technique work. Maybe you just want to learn to walk more effectively. Maybe you can figure out why your knees start to hurt at 3 miles. Maybe you want to start smart. Maybe you’re already running & want to be more efficient. I gotcha covered either way. Get the knowledge I’ve gleaned over 30+years, AND from my current 2-y-o knee cantankerousness.

We are good to go!!!

I’m so excited we’re finally moving on this! Literally! Courtesy of COVID, I’ve missed coaching in person. Please keep in mind that we’ll still need to maintain some distance and keep our groupings small – and I’m immunocompromised, which doesn’t go away, even with vaccination. So please bring a mask with you. You hopefully won’t need to wear it, but ask for your help in keeping me safe.


Your Walk-to-Run Program will start on Tues, June 15, and continue every Tues & Thurs beyond that. This will be a continuous program – it doesn’t stop, as long as we have people coming. You only get better. I’d like to start at 6:15 for now – so plan on being there a little early so I can get every one checked in. I like to start on time. Be forewarned. As we roll into late July & August, we might slide it a little later.

When: June 15, 2021 onward!

Tues & Thurs, 615p

Where: 

  • Memorial Field Track, south end near the parking lot, old entrance gate & bathrooms. 
  • There is 1 working bathroom there. 
  •  I’ll be there, near the purple car (aka “The Blueberry”), wearing an Amber Moon Studio jersey. And I’m a redhead. Trust me, you’ll see me. 

Please come prepared for moving in the heat – typically the humidity is going down by evening. Loose comfy clothes, light colors, bring water, bring a sweat or cooling towel (wet a towel, stick it in a baggie in the freezer, bring it with). 
You will get hot. You will sweat. No excuses except lightning.  Or temps over 100. If it rains (lightly), you’re gonna get wet. (In these instances, you will receive credit for next month). Safety first.
