I knew I wanted to qualify for the Boston Marathon and run in my home city as well as run in the most famous marathon of them all. I also knew I would need a coach and team to get me there. I found Fusion and spoke with Coach Brian and it seemed like a great fit. I wanted to go from a PR of 3:33 in the marathon to a Boston Qualifying time of 3:05 for my age group. It was a lofty and ambitious goal, and many people told me it wasn’t possible, but I was dedicated and determined. With the help of Brian tweaking my stride, the track workouts, and the Saturday runs with the team, I was able to shave 33 minutes off my time and qualify! This team is full of experience and positive attitudes and just fun people to be around. We all strive to make the other person better! I have learned so much running with the team and picking the brains of the members and I can’t wait to pass that knowledge on and help other runners reach their goals. You won’t find a more competitive, yet fun, team in the area. Come run with us and see what we’re all about.
