⚡Participant Testimonials:⚡

“My biggest reason for running with the Extra Mile is all of the support and encouragement of the coaches and fellow runners. The training makes all goals reachable, and you are only limited by what you put into it.”

                                 - Amanda S

“I love all the new friends and support! The training has helped me become a stronger runner, I’m running distances I never thought I could. The encouragement is fabulous!

                                - Angelina P.

“The coaches and the team from Extra Mile Fitness Company are the best… This training season has been rewarding in so many ways. We joined the Extra Mile spring half marathon training group and will be doing the marathon training program this summer. The encouragement and support from all the coaches, Heather, and the running community has been amazing. The training over the past few months has helped me through my journey of grief and moving forward in ways that are much healthier than how I was coping before. It has renewed a spark inside me that's been gone for quite some time. This program has encouraged, supported, and cheered me on and I cannot wait to run more miles with everyone as we continue our journey to the Indy Mini and beyond.”

                          - Nicki C.
