    23 minute PR in just 4 months -Oct 2018

    I have been working with Steve and Stephanie for about 4 months and only have good things to say about the PaceBuilders Elite Coaching Program. I was sick of the cookie-cutter template training plans and didn't feel like I was progressing much as a runner. With 2 half marathons completed (both with almost identical times) I wanted extra support and guidance.

    From the beginning I was impressed with the one-on-one attention I received and felt like they were really creating a plan that was specific to ME. The accountability of knowing someone is checking on my workouts also gave me incentive to get the work done and complete my training logs (so they and I could track my progress effectively).

    I am really proud to say that in less that 4 months after my last half marathon, I just ran a 23 minute PR, going from a 2:35 time to 2:12!!! I never could have done it alone and their encouragement and guidance really did make an enormous difference!

    I had always been dedicated to my training but having someone who REALLY knows running made a world of difference. I loved that they helped me with pacing during my training runs and explained what I should be aiming for and how to make the most of my miles. I felt like they really wanted me to do well and worked hard to create a great plan and answer any questions I had along the way.

    Half marathon PR in just a few months

    I joined PaceBuilders ELITE a few months ago after struggling to find local coaches that actually run and from years of trying to coach myself. 

    I recently ran my 18th 1/2 marathon and got a new personal best with a time of 1 hour, 50 minutes. I’m 57 years old and I am still working. Steve and Stephanie built me a customized program that works for me and my busy schedule.

    PaceBuilders has exceeded my expectations and I’m very impressed with the level of professional coaching and level of engagement I receive. Both Steve and Stephanie communicate with me on a weekly basis and answer any questions I have almost immediately.

    I’ve had local coach’s that haven’t been as supportive as Steve and Stephanie. 

    Thanks for everything Steve and Stephanie! 

    No Excuses!

    Steve, I just wanted to let you know that I did the 10k race today in Ireland and finished with a new PR by over 3 minutes. That makes PRs in the 5K, 10K and Half Marathon this year! Thanks so much for getting me here!
