Run Walk Lawrence

A Galloway Training Program - Sponsored by Ad Astra Running

Hi, I’m J.!

I started this program because of the effect running–and specifically, running the Galloway way–has had in my life.  I ran in school, but not the whole time;  and I’ve run a good portion of my adult life.  But there have also been extended periods when I was not active and did not run.  And if I’ve learned one thing from it all, it’s this:  I’m happier as a runner.  I’m healthier, more hopeful–my IQ might even go up a little.  I don’t know, I’m not a scientist.

I’ve used the Galloway training method to start from scratch–to get back into running after years away from it, unable to run even one lap of a 400-meter track without stopping.  I’ve used it to qualify for the Boston Marathon–running a marathon sixteen minutes faster at the age of 39 than I did as a 27-year-old cross-country coach who ran with high school athletes every day.  And I’ve used it to complete an ultra–the 44-mile “Brew-to-Brew” run between Kansas City, MO, and Lawrence, KS, each Spring.

I want to share the benefits of running with everyone in my community who is interested.  That’s why I started this program.  That’s why I hope you’ll join me.



The Galloway method

For four decades, Jeff Galloway has invited people to reclaim their heritage as runners.  At one time all humans ran--for survival.  Galloway invites you to do the same today:  to run for your own survival.  Don't live to run, run to live--more fully, with better health, greater energy, and deeper joy.  Embrace the runner inside you--embrace yourself--embrace life.  Run to live!
