Welcome Runners!

We are Letty and Ryan, and we love running, just like you. But just like you, sometimes we struggled with motivation or inspiration, and the frustration of completing the many months in a training cycles with only one chance to prove ourselves. We wanted a better experience and find out how to have "perfect runs" on a daily basis.

While google-searching for information, we were flooded with incorrect information promising to help people with training and nutrition for a quick buck, so we decided consult the experts and to compile and share our own research and share it with you.

We came to recognize that there is just one thing standing between us and "a perfect running experience":

The key to a perfect running experience is knowing the ins and outs of good and successful training (physical and mental) and race strategies.

And that's what our site is all about. Through our weekly episodes and blogs, we will provide you with expert-backed content to show you how to approach all of your running: your training, your races, and your recovery on a day to day basis.

We will keep you motivated and inspired throughout it all by through stories and testimials of runners who lived through it and whom you can learn from, and we will make suggestions as to how you can enjoy the ride (your training) and arrive at the finish line with a rich and positive racing experience.

That said, welcome to your one stop shop (although we're not selling anything) for running information and motivation.
