“Linking up with @coachmedinanyc has been one of the best decisions of my running life. I’m very excited to see what we can accomplish at the Brooklyn Half and Grandma’s Marathon.” -ANDY

“One of my resolutions for 2018 was to run more and to challenge myself after letting running take a backseat to other things in my life for the past few years. I ran 2,277 miles this year (compared to 650 in 2017!) and had some exciting personal bests (20 minute PR and BQ in the #philadelphiamarathon!). I started working with @coachmedinanyc, and I don’t think I ever would have been able to reach my goals without the support, motivation, and guidance they have provided. I’ve learned a lot about myself in the past year, and I look forward to seeing what 2019 brings!”

“Thanks to the unending support from my incredible girlfriend Bahar and the top-notch training from @coachmedinanyc and @marie11201 I not only beat every speed goal that I ever set for myself, but I hit them by the 15k mark of the #unitednychalf so that I could relax and enjoy the extraordinary sights and sounds of a closed-off Times Square and the huge smiles on my parents’ faces as I waved to them at mile 11 with us all knowing that I was finally going to break 1:30 after a year and a half of trying.”
