Long Time MDI Runner...

"I can't say enough how much being a long time client has meant to my running. As I have become more experienced, my times have improved immensely & running has become much more enjoyable. I look forward each morning to seeing what's planned for my daily workout.  I would highly recommend Marathon Dynamics if you want to improve your running or reach a specific goal - they really want you to achieve, the rest is up to you."

Race Day Coaching

The MDI coaching staff has had great success assisting individual clients achieve their ultimate dream performances by actively coaching them in over the final few, ever-critical, always tough joining them on-course, mid-race and actively coaching them in over the always-tough, ever-critical, final few kms or miles, either by running, cycling or inline skating alongside.

Prior to the race, we objectively determine your most challenging yet realistic time goal, based you're your training records, then craft your best pacing strategy, based upon the course and expected conditions.  We provide real-time feedback on pacing and running form, and try various motivational techniques to help you find ways to stay strong right to the finish line. 

Price: $125 flat fee + $30/hr of "in race" coaching (min. 1hr, extra cost may apply if race >100km o/s GTA)

Race Day Feedback...
"I can't thank you enough for helping me to tough it out yesterday.  I am absolutely convinced that I wouldn't have hit my Boston Q without you.  I was hurting so bad the last 7K or so, but just tried to stay with you.  The Boston medal was a nice touch!  I can't recall being sooo sore and sooo happy all at the same time!  I'm wearing a permanent smile!"
