Screen Shot 2018-07-02 at 2.44.00 PMAs a former competitive junior sprint/hurdles athlete, I took up distance running after university, and at first ran for fitness. When I began entering road races, my competitive nature lead me to pursue different online training plans, but I missed the feedback and opportunity to discuss my progress with a coach.  I joined FastisFun in the summer of 2016, and Adam’s coaching has provided me a fresh and personalized approach to my training. As a result, I enjoyed one of my most successful seasons in 2016.

Running is traditionally a solitary activity, but an incredible benefit of FastisFun has been the opportunity to meet and run with new friends, and enjoy the motivation they provide.
