My journey with the Road hammers began with several looks on the website and no follow through.
My fear of not being good or fast enough kept me from signing up. I finally decided to reach out to Lee McCarron. After a few back and forth emails, he assured me that the Development Group would be a good fit. So I took a leap of faith and showed up for my 1st practice.
Having never experienced a group based workout before I was initially nervous. But after a few weeks and some high fives from my new training partners, I knew I had made a great decision. The group environment pushes me in a way I just wouldn’t on my own.They are warm and welcoming, supportive and encouraging. The friendships have been inspiring.
Coach Lee has helped me to become a stronger runner through individualized training schedule with specific paces. Weekly well designed fun and challenging group workouts and race day plans.
I am thrilled at my age that I was able to PB at the Fredericton half marathon this past spring after only a few short months of being with the group.
I am looking forward to training for a marathon with my teammates and toeing the line, where I will wear my Road hammer singlet proudly!
