NASHVILLE STRIDERS LONG RUN
TRAINING SERIES FOR THE
ST. JUDE ROCK N ROLL NASHVILLE MARATHON & HALF MARATHON WINTER/SPRING 2017
"You don't need to be fast! What you do need is will: the will to abide by a training program. The will to get up a couple hours earlier on Saturday or Sunday morning to get your long run in. The will to structure your life a bit more over the next few months: to get more sleep, drink more fluids, eat more carefully."
- John Hanc - The Essential Marathoner
