From the Community . . .

I wanted to say thank you to MTA members, Angie and Trevor for being the supportive running group I’ve needed to shoot for my goals. I went through a dark time when I finished college soccer and was left with no team and no support network other than my family that lived 2 hours away. No goals and no direction. I found running as a way to cope and then it later became my new athletic identity and main sport. I became a marathoner with the help of MTA! Because of this, I recently tried out for a semi pro soccer team that FC Wichita is starting this year. And all be darn if I didn’t make the call back and will be going to training camp to compete for a roster spot! I would not have had the confidence or fitness base to do this had I not of found running or had the backing of the MTA to keep me goal oriented and motivated. Thank you! I am grateful for you all! -Traci

    This book is a comprehensive program. It includes controversies, such as the ones surrounding the dangers of overtraining, as well as scientific information on what works to improve your running no matter what stage in life you are currently living. In my opinion, it’s a great book!
