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.

Reaching New Heights

Okay.  I admit it:  I like hills!  And we do a lot of hill training.

Last weekend, it all paid off!

The San Francisco Nike runners flew over the hills. It was so amazing and so fun.

Temecula, on the other hand, might not have seemed so fun.  The hills were huge.  Brutal. Constant.

But what did you all do?  You CONQUERED.  As I hear the stories, there are some common themes:

1.  You all were there to support each other.  It is our greatest strength as a group and one of the (many) reasons that I love you all so much.

2.  You actually had fun. Okay, not every minute.  But you did.

3.  You felt amazing about accomplishing such a tough challenge.  Running (hills) with Val this morning, my heart was filled with joy listening to her talk about how she felt about accomplishing this feat.  You all need to know how amazing you are.

So, this week on Oct. 26, I give you the gift of a nice flat route. But on Nov. 2, when we gather for another run (and our post-race awards), we'll be back to the hills.

Because we can. 

Much love to you all!  JM

Where It All Begins
This is a picture of me finishing my first half.

To be honest, I wasn't sure I could do it.  But I did!!!!

And you can, too. 

On Sept. 14, we'll start a new training cycle for the Carlsbad Half or Tinker Bell Half (January 19).  You can start that week, and be ready to cross the finish line.  And there's still plenty of time to start for the Holiday Half on December 29.

If you have any doubts about this, spend a week with Sole to Soul.  You'll learn that you have the support you need to succeed.  You'll discover that you have more strength than you thought.  You'll do things you never that you could.

And you'll smile when you cross the finish line.

That's where it ends, but it begins with a single step.  Come take that step with us this week.  You can do it!

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!
