Not sure about joining the group? Check out this testimonial from a previous RunnerDude's Fitness Beginning Running Group participant. 
“I want to start out by saying I'm not an athlete. I don't like to sweat and I haven't exercised since I hit puberty. But at age 41, with my weight steadily rising and my self esteem plummeting, I knew I needed to make some changes. RunnerDude’s beginning running program was perfect for me. Thad started us off slowly, set do-able goals and the end of every run felt like a victory. By the end of the program we were running 30 minutes non-stop, something I thought I'd never do. And I'm still running on my own today. I've lost weight, lost five inches and fit into my clothes again. But more importantly I'm healthier and have gained tremendous confidence. I wouldn't have done it without Thad and our group. If I can do it, anyone can. Thanks RunnerDude!” Sherri Rhyne—Greensboro, NC
Group running is one of the best ways to get started. Not only will you make some great friends, you'll also have the support of RunnerDude and your fellow beginning runners to encourage and motivate you as enter the awesome world of running.

Do you run any half-marathon training-programs? Just checking for the future.

If yes, when will that be up for grabs?

Hi Ed! Sure do. Currently have three groups in progress (Cannonball Run, Battle of the Triad, and Mistletoe). I'll definitley have ones for the spring kicking in shortly after the New Year. This link will give you more details http://www.runnerdudesfitness.com/Running_Services.html

Hi Ed! Me again. See that you're in NY. I don online training for any half or full marathon. Let me know if/when you may be interested in some training or a training plan. Be awesome to work with you, man.

Ed said...

Awesome! That would be great! Yeah, I just got into running this year. I struggle with it because I work long hours and I'm pretty lazy when it comes to exercise before/after work, as you can tell from my blog (aLazyRunnersBlog). I have my first 10K coming up this Sunday. I want to do a half sometime in 2011. I could use all the help/motivation I can get.
