I have learned so much from working with Jawn! Within the first two weeks of working with him I realized I had been training in ways that hindered both my running and recovery. I’m now running farther and faster than I used to, and most importantly, feeling significantly better both during and after runs. I have learned the power of pace variation, how to recover from a run, how to prepare for a run, and different strategies to employ during a run. The training plans Jawn creates are always completely individualized and tailored to my busy schedule, interests, and goals. His feedback has been invaluable. He truly understands not only the fun and joys of running, but also the physical and mental demands of training. I find myself thinking of his stories and advice even when I’m not running. I really love running with the feeling that I have someone in my corner, not only to hold me accountable but also to celebrate the achievement of my goals. Working with Jawn has given me a confidence I never had before and I find I’m consistently setting new goals and then attaining them. I started working with Jawn with the goal of running a marathon to celebrate my 40th birthday. I was completely intimidated by the idea of a marathon, especially stories of hitting the wall, but Jawn broke down all the training into a manageable schedule that gradually built up my mileage and kept me injury-free. My primary goal for the marathon was to not hit the wall and to enjoy it, and my secondary goal was to run it under 4 hours. I achieved both goals easily, a testimony to how well Jawn prepared me. By mile 8 I knew it was going to be a great run and I never even came close to hitting the wall. I can honestly say I enjoyed every single mile of the marathon and crossed the finish line with a huge smile, something I'll always remember. I have also reached every other goal I have set, including bringing down my mile time, setting a PR in the half marathon, and just improving my overall health and fitness. I'm looking forward to future marathon and half marathon PRs and maybe one day trying an ultramarathon. I can’t recommend Jawnenough. His passion for running, depth of knowledge, and personalized attention will benefit any runner!
