Margie M. – Missoula, MT writes:
I am a 44 year old mother of 3 boys, recreational "jogger", and a physician in practice here in my hometown of Missoula, Montana. Just like any other working parent I have always found plenty of reasons to NOT train for a marathon. But when the announcement came out in the fall of 2006 that the first Missoula Marathon would be held in July 2007, I knew that I just had to be a part of it all as I have participated in almost every local 5K or 10K road race in the past 10 years, mostly with the family and almost always pushing a stroller! I signed up early thereby committing myself to participating in the marathon.

Wanting to be prepared, I read four books about marathon training before I discovered Art's website in mid-October '06 and started working on the mileage buildup schedule as I had rarely run farther than 3.5 miles up to that point. I contacted Art in early March for personal training. I cannot tell you how incredible it was to work with Art. He really personalizes the training schedule for each runner taking in to account our work schedules, lifestyles, abilities and even vacations. With his guidance and support, I was able to spend the next few months diligently preparing for the marathon. I remained injury free and any problem I had was quickly addressed by Art, such as blisters, chafing, shoe issues, recovery, etc. The bottom line is this: I finished the Inaugural Missoula Marathon with my family cheering me on even though it was a toasty 96 degrees at the finish line.

My time was 5:45:28 and I am proud of that and proud to be able to say that I finished a marathon! Art was an awesome coach, always supportive and never judgmental about time or speed. It was largely due to him that I had so much belief in myself and my abilities. Four days after the marathon all soreness and fatigue had resolved and I attribute this to having been so well trained. Now I can honestly say "I'm a runner"! I know what I am capable of and I am confident that the baseline running fitness that I have built up over the months will serve me well as I continue enjoy running. Thanks, Art!
