Jeff Galloway running school coming to Connecticut!

Disclosure:  As Galloway bloggers we were sent this information to share with our readers.  No compensation was received.

If you are lucky enough to live in Connecticut or nearby, you will have a great running opportunity coming your way on April 11th!   Jeff Galloway, former Olympian, author, runner and running coach will be holding a workshop for runners.  Christine and I followed Jeff's training plans for several of our Disney challenge races, most recently Christine ran the Glass Slipper Challenge and got a huge PR during the 10k.  Our first encounter with Jeff was during the Wine and Dine Half Marathon runDisney meetup in November of 2012.  What an experience to be able to run with Jeff and then listen to him speak.  He is so encouraging to every runner whether you are a back of the pack runner or a sub 3 hour marathoner.

Jeff next to Mickey!
Please let us know if you sign up!  We will be most anxious to hear all about the program. Unfortunately, neither of us can attend this year because we will be in Boston the following weekend!

  1. Sounds great. I live a few hours away but I have a 5k on April.

  2. Too bad Darlene. I used his run walk run method to achieve my Boston Qualifying time last year. Jeff is so approachable and friendly, I am sure this program will be fantastic!

  3. this sounds awesome-I wish I could go! I hope it is popular so he hosts more clinics around the country

  4. I wish. I really want to attend a workshop this year before I begin marathon training. This looks like just the perfect way to kick off training.

  5. Jeff Galloway is an amazing man! I cannot even imagine how many people's lives he has changed. I truly believe he has opened up running (especially distance running) to a whole new group of people who are going to be healthier physically and mentally because of it. I always love hearing him speak!

  6. I live in CT and I am running the half marathon that he is there for on the 12...I am so bummed I can not attend the running school as I will be at a dance comp with my daughter that day
