Kara Schmidt
When I first signed up for the RunnersConnect community I didn't know what to expect. Were they all going to be fast runners that would look down their noses at my measly 10-11 minute per mile pace? Would they snicker at me behind the safety of their screens and just shake their head at the girl pretending to be a runner? I figured I had nothing to lose so I jumped in with both feet. What I found was a diverse group of runners that offer wisdom and support in amazing ways I never thought possible. I feel a true comradery with my teammates and look forward to seeing their running progress daily. I've made some amazing friendships with people from all around the world through RunnersConnect. I wouldn't trade that for anything now. Kara Schmidt - Improved from 2:08 to 1:57 Half Marathon
Dean Roberts
One of my favorite parts of RunnersConnect is to not have to worry about constructing and maintaining my own training schedule. I really enjoy all the articles and blog posts about what makes a good schedule, why things are done the way they are since they give me the confidence that training being proposed is valid Dean Roberts - First time marathoner
Peter Tiscione
Qualifying for Boston had always been a big running goal of mine. I had trained hard over the years, but kept coming up short on my qualifying runs. RunnersConnect really helped me target my workouts and I dropped my marathon PR by over 10 minutes to blow past my Boston Marathon qualifying time. To say I was thrilled would be an understatement. I'll be toeing the line for Boston in 2011 and I can't wait! Peter Tiscione - Dropped 10 minutes to qualify for Boston
With the responsibility and stress that comes with being the head of a small product division, running is my sanctuary. Although I don't strive to win any races, I do want to see myself consistently improve. Having RunnersConnect write my training schedule, and more importantly, all my optimal running paces, helps me keep my running a stress-free and fun outlet. When I wake up in the morning I don't have to think about what my next run will be or if it will be the most beneficial way for me to improve; RunnersConnect takes care of it all. I always feel like I can maximize my training time and my results. When I have a training hiccup or miss a day, the community is right there to keep me motivated and figure out how to adjust. I recommend RunnersConnect to anyone who is looking to improve the quality of their running and enjoys the peace of mind that comes with being coached by an expert. Margaret - Rochester Hills, MI
Dennis Moore
Since joining RC, I have run four more HMs with a current PR of 1:56:27 (my first HM was just under 2:10). I finished my first FM last fall. The races are awesome, but the biggest award I believe is having gone from "I'm not a real runner" to "I'm a runner with miles to go." Dennis Moore - Kansas City
