Lions Den SMP Run Club helped me to achieve a 3-hour marathon and a sub 1:20 half marathon with their training and guidance.  Their group runs on Sunday make the long 20 milers much more enjoyable, and their track workouts will make you faster and stronger than you thought you could be.  Thank you to not only these two great coaches, but what have also become two very good friends!
