Sole to Soul Running is a very special kind of running/walking group. No matter what your fitness level, you'll find the support you need to accomplish goals you never thought were possible!

We offer support if you're just starting out or an experienced runner or walker. It's a great time to run -- or learn to run -- or walk. This group is for YOU; no matter what your pace or experience, we think you're perfect!  

Our Facebook page is your best source for up-to-date training and race information!  


I'm not a certified coach or physician -- just someone who knows that running with wonderful people makes for a wonderful life.  Please see About Us for important information about my coaching skills (or lack thereof).  

Here's the thing:  It may start with the sole, but it changes the soul! 

We'd love for you to join us on our Saturday morning and race day adventures. See our Training Schedule each week for our meeting place and mileage.

My heart is so full!

I am so thankful for everyone who came out on Saturday morning and hosted such a great post-race birthday celebration. 50 really is fabulous.

I was so incredibly proud of you for how well everyone did on our hilly Carmel Valley to Solana Beach route.  I know some of you were scared, and yet you conquered!!!  See? You can do this!

How fun to see so many of you at my house Saturday night, as well.  Thank you.  I must admit: Everyone looks really different all dressed up.  You all clean up well!  Still, you are never as handsome or beautiful as after you complete a run.  Accomplishment is very attractive. 

This week -- it's all flat!  Teresa is our new Walking Captain, so please encourage walkers to join us, as well. 

Have a great week, and I'll see you all on the 24th!  JM

Yay Solemates!

Each week, I'm so inspired by everyone coming out and joining us on this adventure. It's a REALLY BIG DEAL that you are challenging yourself in new ways.

I'm so proud of you!

If you're thinking about joining us, I really suggest signing up for an event -- like the new SD Half Marathon in March.  You can start now (I'll adjust the mileage), but that training cycle will start fresh on Oct. 29 -- so you can begin adding a minute or two of jogging now and be completely ready for the new cycle (and for the race, of course).  Join our Sole to Soul Running team for more support and encouragement.

If you're an experienced runner, we'd love to have you, too.  ALL levels are welcome, and we all help inspire each other.  Please follow us on Facebook for regular information, and let me know if you have any questions!

Our group is growing -- and it couldn't be more fun!

Every week, we've had more runners join us -- at every level -- and it's been wonderful to see every complete our mileage.

This week, on Sept. 10, we'll meet at Spanish Landing (see Training Schedule for details), and I encourage new members to join us.  I'll have routes available for a variety of distances and, since you never have to feel bad about your speed, it's a great time to challenge yourself and increase your endurance.

I also ask your help!  Our Oct. 1 run will be at the Shamu & You Family Walk (I work for Rady Children's Hospital, so I'm combining my passions). It's $30 for adults and $19 for kids, and it's so fun.  Register for my team -- One Crazy Grandma -- at www.shamuandyouwalk.org/onecrazygrandma.  Thank you so much for helping me help kids. 

See you on Saturday!  JM

Many of our members joined Sole to Soul to train for their first 1/2 marathon. Most of us never thought that running 13.1 miles was even possible when we first started training but, together, we learned that we could do it.

Our running motto is "At Peace With My Pace." I believe that with encouragement and support, you can cross the finish line -- still upright, smiling and ready to sign up for another adventure.

You can do this, too; please email me with questions!
