FIRST seeks to assist runners of all ages and abilities achieve their goals and potential. With coaching by e-mail, FIRST assists runners by developing individually tailored training programs designed around a runner's current fitness level and available training time. The FIRST training programs are customized programs. Our capacity for coaching is limited. The e-FIRST coaching program is available on a quarterly basis. e-FIRST coaching is quarterly because effective coaching can only occur with short-term and long-term planning in mind. After the initial 3 months, e-FIRST may be continued per continuous month. A 16-week training program specifically for the marathon is also available. With the release of RUNNER'S WORLD RUN LESS, RUN FASTER
we have received numerous requests for e-coaching. While we wish we could help all interested runners, in order to provided individualized assistance, we have to limit the number of runners we assist. Contact FIRST
about availability for e-FIRST coaching slots. Because the requests for coaching far exceed our capacity, we encourage runners interested in e-FIRST coaching to get a copy of RUNNER'S WORLD RUN LESS, RUN FASTER
