“Theodora’s plan for me broke things down into small, easy to digest steps and stages but still gave me the flexibility to move things around to suit my own schedule too. I am not a runner—never have been, never will be—but running a half with my dad was important to me. Somewhere around mile 9 I actually said “this isn’t so bad!” and crossed the finish line with a smile on my face.” — Meg F.

“I am a 67-year-old active male who had never competed in a half marathon and in no shape to do so.  I turned to coach Theodora Blanchfield who developed a four-month progressive training plan of running and exercise to assist in reaching that goal.  I am happy to report that I completed the Brooklyn Half Marathon and had enough “gas in the tank” to have gone even further!  Looking forward to one day finishing a full marathon.” — Lee F.

“I didn't know I was a runner until Theodora convinced me I was one. Beyond helping me build confidence in my abilities, Theodora created a smart and beginner-friendly training plan that prepared me for the half-marathon distance. She accompanied me on training runs, talked me through race strategy and logistics (I had a lot of questions!), and helped me cross that fateful finish line on the Coney Island boardwalk with a giant smile on my face. I've since run six half-marathons and even finished my first triathlon. I have Theodora to thank for giving me the push I needed, and encouraging me to continue pushing myself year after year.” — Jordan S. 

“Training for my first half marathon with Theodora as my coach was a fantastic experience — my goal was to keep a consistent pace and finish strong, and her plan prepared me physically AND psychologically for my race. (Don't underestimate that Mile 10 wall!!) With Theodora's help, I felt confident throughout my whole race.” — Alex O.
