Shhhhhhh … Get our PT365 Run Plans before everyone else



(Heads up, blog fans, here’s a sneak peek at our big running project, just for you.)

If you’re looking for a running coach, there’s probably nobody better than Air Force Reserve Lt. Col. (Dr.) Mark Cucuzzella.

He’s a physician, knows what’s what with the military’s PT tests – and is wicked fast. How fast? The 47-year-old still regularly clocks sub-3-hour marathons.

And now, with our PT365 Run Plans, he can be your coach, too.

Over the next few weeks, we’ll outline three training plans from “Dr. Mark”: a 5K plan that even non-runners can follow, plus half-marathon and full marathon plans for experienced runners. ['Like' us on Facebook to get them now.] Each will include the science behind the plans, training tips and pitfalls to avoid. Be sure to check back here for extra videos, advice and blog posts from our runners.

There’s a plan for almost everyone, whether you’re trying to get back in shape after time off or training to finish an injury-free marathon.

Think of us as your virtual training group. We’re targeting the Marine Corps Marathon, but these plans will work for any race. We’ll provide the training plans – you bring the motivation.

Come train with us. It’ll be fun.
