  • "“So I can eat gravy” was my stock response two and a half years ago when first asked what motivated me to start running. I’d done the rounds with diets and didn’t believe I would ever find one that I would stick to for more then a few days at a time. I decided that exercise was the answer and I thought that if I ran I wouldn’t have to worry so much about what I ate. I do love to eat. Months passed and the running became easier, I even trained for and finished my first marathon, but still my weight never did change substantially and to add salt to that wound I found that my pace had slowed as well. But, the marathon was an experience that changed the way I had been looking at running. Within minutes of dragging my ass across that finish-line I was already thinking about what I could have, and should have, done differently and better. I decided immediately that I would be running another marathon but that I would do the next one right. This meant that I would have to take the steps to lose the extra weight and if it included giving up gravy then so be it. I’m twenty pounds lighter now and getting close to my self-imposed “maximum weight to start marathon training” goal and I’m feeling optimistic that this will be the year of my second marathon. I don’t often get asked why I run any more but when asked what has motivated me to loose weight, the answer is “So I can run.” Running works".

    Joe Henderson's Marathon Team
    Sunday 7:30 am Joe Henderson's Marathon Team
    Training for a long race goes better if you run with a group that shares your goal and a coach who has helped runners reach it before. You set the goal, and we provide the group support and coaching advice for carrying out a proven training plan.
    Our latest program trains runners for the 2015 Eugene Marathon. This is the 22th round of Joe Team, which the Eugene Running Company has sponsored since its launch in 2005. More than 300 runners have successfully completed this program, with a 99%-plus finish rate.
    The Team meets at the Running Company on Sunday mornings at 7:30 A.M. The fee for the marathon program is $125.
    We welcome runners of all abilities and experience levels. However, we strongly recommend that you have run at least six miles before this training begins. Eugene Running Company group training on Sundays and Mondays can help you build toward our starting distance. To reserve a spot on this team, which is limited to 40 runners, contact the coach:

    Eugene Running Company's Eugene Marathon and Half Marathon Team
    With Bella Richardson and Colleen Wedin Saturdays at 7:30 am Eugene Running Company's Eugene Marathon and Half Marathon Team
    We invite you to join Coach Bella Richardson and Colleen Wedin and the Eugene Running Company’s 2015 Eugene Marathon/ Half-Marathon Team.
    Join us as we prepare for the Eugene Marathon and Half-Marathon held this year on May 10th (or any May marathon/half-marathon). This Team is for beginners and advanced marathoners/ half-marathoners. Group members enjoy the support and motivation of being part of a marathon team. Throughout the 18-week program, members will receive a training schedule, expert coaching advice and guidance, and group long runs with aid stations. Participants also receive free team uniform shirts and 10% store discounts.
    Runners who are looking to improve their overall performance or qualify for Boston or New York have the option of following an advanced/performance-oriented training program. This includes speed work, higher mileage, and specific  long runs.
    The group is open to runners of all abilities, but we do ask that you have completed a long run of at least 6 miles before beginning the marathon training in January 17th (4 miles for half-marathon runners). This is a running only marathon and half-marathon training program with a marathon cut-off goal time of 6:00.
    Bella Richardson and Colleen Wedin are experienced marathon coaches who have been coaching all distances up to marathon. They have run several self-coached marathons, half marathons, and ultra marathons and are both Boston Marathon qualifiers. The group meets at the Eugene Running Company every Saturday at 7:30 AM starting January 18th. Cost is $125 for 4 months of training for Eugene Marathon or $85 for 3 months of training for the Eugene Half Marathon.
