Runbayou is made up of distance runners who are motivated to improve. There are no guarantees but check out these performances after only one season of Runbayou training.
But wait, there's more.
See what the runners are saying about the program. Look at the pretty picture taken way too early in the morning. Find out how Runbayou got started.
Here is what folks are saying about the Runbayou training program.
I have been running
consistently for 6 1/2 years and during that time I have run 15 marathons. I
have been coached by Al Lawrence and Kent Oglesby (internet based former world
class runner). In December I ran a 3 minute PR in the 30K and at Houston had a
marathon PR under less than ideal conditions. I’m not getting any younger so it
must be the program.
I also wanted to take the time to thank you
for the excellent program you have put together. I think my finishing time
speaks for itself as I improved my marathon PR from a 3:56:43 in Houston in
2004, to a 3:16:35 this past Sunday. I have never trained physically harder for
anything in my life, and it obviously paid off. Thank you again.
Thanks for helping me train for a great
run today. I'm very happy with my 4+ minute PR.
Many thanks again to you for a great
training program. I clearly picked up a lot more speed and endurance than I've
had in past races.
Runbayou program helped me to increase my mileage safely and without injury as
well as increase my running confidence. During the Runbayou program I was able
to finish first in 2 5K races and one marathon!
All your hard work paid off and you
helped a lot of other runners get ready for the race.
enjoyed the Runbayou program and would welcome the opportunity to continue
training with the group.
appreciate all you've done for me this (last) year, its been truly great to run
with a motivated group, under your guidance and direction.
Runbayou program is great!! I feel stronger than I have in years and my 5k time
is improving, too!!!! Thanks so much!!!!!!!!!!
Cudos again, to Jay, Runbayou, and the Jack Daniels Training
Plan. I really felt their training plan paid off for me on Sunday. I qualified
for Boston with a 3:52:49.
...thanks again for runbayou. I definitely go to your web
site more than any other. I thought it was an excellent training program!

Here's a picture of many of the Tuesday/Thursday morning workout crew. This
picture was taken just before our last workout; 5 days before the 2006 Houston
I was 45 years old and about 25lbs overweight when I decided to run a marathon. Not just any marathon mind you; the Boston Marathon. When informed that you have to actually qualify to run in Boston, I realized that I'd have to run two marathons. Had I known how hard it would be, I would've stuck to tennis.
So, in July 1998, I joined the Houston Fit marathon training program with a single goal of running the 1999 Houston Marathon fast enough to qualify for Boston. I went to the seminars, read everything I could get my hands on, and immersed myself in distance running.
In January 1999, I ran my first marathon and qualified to run in the Boston Marathon. I was now a marathoner and was going to Boston! The next day, it began to hit me. Boston was only 3 months away and I couldn't even walk down stairs. And questions were flooding me...could I recover in time to be able to run in Boston? And what about Boston...would I run it faster, slower, the same....what? It was confusing but I was hooked and determined to find the answers. So I read more...
I've continued to study the art and science of distance running and train accordingly. Since 1998, I'm happy to report that my race times have dropped dramatically and I have managed to accumulate a few racing awards from the 5K to the marathon.
I love setting challenging goals and the process of achieving them. The Runbayou training program is all about your goals and your desire to reach them.
