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.

Join Us!

In 2007, I allowed myself to become inspired.

After watching my amazing niece, Jacque, run a marathon, I decided to sign up for the Rock n Roll Half -- something that I never thought I would ever really be able to do. 

But, in 2008, I did, with Jacque by my side (at least for the pictures at the end!).

You can complete a half, too, and Sole to Soul can help you. On July 4, we're starting a new training cycle for the San Diego Celebration Half, which will be held on November 1.  Start with us now, and you'll have the time you need to safely and happily train to complete the run -- whether it's your first Half or if you're an experienced runner.  Here's what you need:

1.  The desire to do this.  I promise you will be SO PROUD of yourself.  It's an incredible feeling to do something like this.

2.  A commitment to training. Each week, you'll complete two mid-week runs, one 30-minute crosstraining (walking/biking/zumba/whatever) and our Saturday long runs.  It's completely doable -- especially with the support of the group.  We meet somewhere new each Saturday, so you'll see a lot of San Diego, too. So fun!

3.  Patience with yourself.  If you're not a runner, or if you're returning to running, we'll start you off with run/walk intervals. It's a great way to train safely and effectively.  Make sure you bring a watch or something to help you keep the time as you go.

4.  Support.  We all know how hard this is -- and you'll never need to feel like you're best isn't enough.  You keep going; we'll all be there to cheer you on! 

The best way to stay up-to-date is through Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/soletosoulrunning.  Please like us and join the conversation.

Let yourself be inspired. The Celebration Half will be my 43rd half marathon, so you never know where this will lead!   

Hope to see you... 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!
