Miles That Matter training programs, are designed to provide the maximum training benefit, within a time commitment that fits any lifestyle, while drastically reducing the risk of both injury and burnout.

Let’s face it; all of us lead busy and hectic lives. We don’t have time to put in hours and hours of training each and every week. Karen has worked with many first-time and veteran walkers, runners, cyclists and tri-athletes over the years. There is a training program that works for all fitness levels – from the beginner to the experienced. Those who participate in Karen’s programs stay motivated and healthy throughout their training and achieve personal fitness goals they never thought were possible.

The whole purpose of Miles That Matter is to help you create a healthy lifestyle. You can achieve that without racing, but setting goals through participation in events has been proven to increase your success. Participating in events is a great way of patting yourself on the back for seeing your fitness journey through. We will help you with whatever your goals may be—participating in races—or just to get fit!

The Miles That Matter training program for The Born To Run or Walk 5K will begin on Saturday, July 16, 2011 at 7:00 a.m. at the Buckeye Running Company located at 4200 Aero Dr., Mason, Ohio 45040 (near intersection of Western Row & Tylersville). We will periodically be meeting at this location for weekly workouts.
