Linda:

Yesterday, I did my second 30 minute run. I'm 52 - and have run more in the last year (I had to restart the program after taking time off after surgery) than the entire rest of my life combined. I am still overweight, but in much better shape, and loving that!

Brian:

I just finished the 5k101 program at our Turkey Trot in Rochester, NY. I can't believe how far I have come, it is so motivating and I can't wait to sign up for the next race. Thanks for a great program to follow!!! It was an amazing experience.

Peter:

I did your your couch to 5k program in July and have been running 3 - 4 times a week since then. Thanks so much for your programs. I never thought I would be able to run 5 k and especially never thought that I would start to enjoy them!

Richie:

Have you tried the rest? Now try the best! I have always wanted to start running, never had the motivation to keep running. I stumbled across some of the podcasts in the itunes store and tried a few out. It wasn't until I started this one that my running took off.
The Running Mate media is very encouraging and I enjoy the way it is laid out. I have stuck to this program and 6 weeks into it I am doing incredibly well, also lost 6 pounds in the process. (never thought I would get this far) I have my first 5k in about 7 weeks. I definitely will be ready by then.
Looking forward to seeing a 26.2 mile 101 program.

Lisa:

Love, Love, Love this series. Todd's voice has literally coached me off the couch and into running almost every day! I am forever grateful and truly enjoy this new part of my life. The music on the podcasts is great and I truly appreciate Todd's energy and upbeat attitude. He is also very active on his company's Facebook page and gives tons of encouragement there as well. I would recommend this podcast series to anyone who wants to run, is learning to run or who already loves to run!

Suzie:

If you want to start running for the new year or any time, this is the podcast to ensure your success. I started this after an injury in an effort to avoid re-injury. This podcast takes you from a walk-run to a run-walk and eventually to 30 minutes of running. Also has nice supplemental podcasts. The website and Facebook page offer a great support network. I have tried out various methods and programs and this podcast has been the answer for me.

Hugh:

Just have to say a big THANK YOU for your podcast. I'm on week 7 now and i never thought i would get here. Thanks for the motivation!

Brian:

Hi Todd, I have been using your 5k101 app and I have to say that i LOVE your program. I have never liked running and was never good at it. A friend suggested I use it and I did, now I can't wait to run. So thanks for helping me get the exercise I need! I have been recommending this to everyone I know and I can't wait until I can get your 10k101 program to work on.

Kerry:

So I just started the 5k 101 week 1 podcast and I have to say thank you thank you thank you. I have struggled with running in the past but this program is definitely doable. Once completed I'm going to do the 10k program.

Janina:

Early last year, at the age of 43 I started 5k101. At first I used to cheat a little on the runs (50 seconds is close enough, isn't it?) but I kept going and finished it. Yesterday I finished my first full marathon in 5 hours 54 minutes. I ran all the way and my last 5 miles was the second fastest of the marathon.

Karen:

I did my first 5K on Saturday, playing week 7 of the 5K 101 podcast while I ran. It was like having a coach run along with me. My time sucked but I finished and it's only up from here.

Thanks, Todd!

Andrea:

First 10k finished! Thanks Todd! Now where's the training program for the 1/2 Marathon?

Stephanie:

Woo hoo!! I'm a Half Marathon Finisher!! Never did I think I could be a runner... and then I took a chance and completed the 5k101 in the fall 2012. I haven't looked back since! Today was simply amazing!!

Alexandra:

Four months ago I gave up smoking. Three months ago I began running. Two months ago I realized I couldn't stop what I had started. Last week, I graduated the program and ran my first 5k. Tonight I ran four miles! I can't be stopped! Thanks, Todd. Think I finally found my thing. Guess I'll start training for 10k!

Meghann:

Finished my 1st ever 10 km ...1hr,12 mins! Gun Run, Cape Town, SA! Yippee!

Meagan:

I attempted to keep up my 5km pace and increase my distance, but I was slipping and felt defeated and unmotivated. I decided I needed Todd's motivation again, so I downloaded the 10k101 program. I'm so excited to start it! Wish me luck!

Carolyn:

18 months ago I downloaded 5k101 with a goal of running 5k. I have since run 2 x 10k, 3 half marathons and today I ran my first marathon. Thank you Running Mate for starting me on my running journey!

Sean:

Done with week 5 but already doing 5k's. Ran one in 32:54 this morning. Thanks Todd for getting me back into shape and keeping me motivated!

Kathleen:

I just finished my first 5K on Labor day in 35 minutes! I love running mate. Thank you so much for helping reach one of my goals. Now on to run a faster 5K!

Matthew:

Thanks Todd, finished Wk 8 Day 3 last night. Never thought I would get there!

Jus:

After only 3 weeks on Fastest 5K, I completed a 10km race yesterday. Last year's time: 1:07:28. This year's time: 1:01:07....PB for both 5km and 10km! My next 10km race better watch out...I'll be going for sub 60!

Suzanne:

5K 101 under my belt and week 1 of 10K 101 just completed. I actually enjoyed my run this morning, thank you. I think I am becoming a runner.
