We'll also give you a training schedule with suggested activities for the rest of the week.
Q: If I have to miss a workout or two, does that mean I can't be part of the program?
A: Of course you can still be involved! We would love to have every training group participant at every run, but we understand that life and obligations may occasionally get in the way. That said, if you're planning to miss more than half of the workouts, please check in with our training program coordinator before signing up.
