Word on the Street


"I really appreciate Pam and Ave's time and energy they put into the group training. They always run with us and are are very supportive and encouraging. I've been able to meet some of my personal goals during the last few months as Pam continues to push me out of my comfort zone." - Bel Air Runner

"When I turned 54, I thought, ‘now is the time to join a running program!’ I did not feel out of place in this group. I felt welcomed and encouraged. So I kept attending and laughing and training and, to my surprise, started to be able to run a short distance without stopping. When I started I literally could not run around a city block without stopping. With many of my friends from my running group, I ran my first 5K without walking at the Baltimore's Women's Classic a few months later. I was so amazed that I was able to accomplish this that I actually cried." - Julie 

"I signed up for 5k training program in January of 2016. From there I rolled over to the 10k, and then 10 Miler training group. In one year I literally went from 'I don't run unless I am being chased - and even then it's debatable' girl to completing the 2016 B3 Series!"
