P3 Coaches have been in the trenches. We’ve struggled to get our running shoes on and out the door on a cold, dark and rainy morning. We’ve let the heat beat us down. We’ve made mistakes in training and on race day. We’ve faced injuries.

We’ve also persevered. We’ve nailed track workouts, strengthened our bodies, and sharpened our minds to stand up to any condition and overcome any obstacle. We show up, we push through, and with every lesson learned and challenge completed, we get one step closer to becoming our best selves.
