John Young

Today marks the 118th running of the Boston Marathon, one of the oldest and most prestigious road racing events.  The stage is set for both the runners and the city of Boston to demonstrate resilience, strength and courage in the face the tragic events that occurred last year.  It goes without saying that it is a very important and historic day for Boston, the sport of marathon running, and also for several of our very own employees who are participating in the race.

Training to Train vs. Training to Compete


Training to train versus training to compete are two completely different animals. There are programs that are designed for people who are "Training to Train." Training is their sport.
