Belinda Parish | 2017 Gold Coast Half Marathon - 1:57:14
Thanks so much for allowing me to find my passion for running. It's come along in leaps and bounds over the past 18 months as a result of training under your awesome guidance. You're a bloody legend mate!
Following the Gold Coast Marathon, I had two goals - firstly, to finish a marathon strongly and then to be hovering closer to the three-thirties rather than the fours. Geting on board with the online programme and the PCRG sessions after the Gold Coast made both these ambitions a reality. The structure of your programme was spot on, the training advice and support thorugh emails was exceelent and the PCRG sessions invaluable, It makes me wonder why I didn't get a professional on board earlier.
