What is your favorite workout?

What is your favorite running moment or running quote?

Describe your running before HRL and after. How have you improved and which PR’s have dropped?

-Before HRL I ran because I had to. After HRL I learned to love and embrace running! I have been able to drop my two-mile time by at least a minute and half and increase mileage.

Why does training with Hawaii Running Lab work for you?

-Dr. Garrison from the very beginning emphasized working hard but also enjoying the running experience. HRL works for me because Dr. Garrison treats you like family and takes the time to cater the runs to your needs and situation. Even while deployed when my running was limited, Dr. Garrison made workouts that would fit my situation.
