Great Times at the San Diego RnR

GetMovin Got Movin at the Rock'n'Roll Marathon in San Diego!

After a fun filled and challenging 20 weeks of training, GetMovinSD hit the roads this weekend at the San Diego Rock'n'Roll Marathon in the Remix 5k, the Marathon and in the Half Marathon.

It could not have been more wonderful.

From the pre-race day 5k experience of some of our C25K people (and some of the long race folks who used it as a tune up ... and to get 3 medals) to the amazing finish of Mike Wahl in the Marathon, the weekend was superb.


Remix Laughter. Fun On 5k Race Day
Pre-Race day was a treat, as so many people decided to run the 5k! From some gloriously quick finishes, to improvements on the times people ran at the Carlsbad 5000, the runners were amazing. They even, apparently, nearly ran OVER Meb Keflezighi (Olympic Medalist and Boston and NYC Marathon champion) as he was stretching. 

The day was PERFECT for running, and many of those who did not do the 5k came down to the expo on Saturday for a little pre-race trot and packet pickup! 

The rest of the weekend then lay before the runners.



Signage and Fun
The folks not running did a great job of getting out there and supporting the team running! From the amazingly cool sign that Christine made with the names of all the runners doing the Half and Full, to the C25K folks who showed up in droves and got to be our cheer squad from start to finish!


Cheers and Smiles.
While there were many challenges (ie ... hills) and the occasional nagging injury, we all had a great time running, listening to music, being a part of a bigger event, and ultimately learning about ourselves while we were part of a bigger community of runners and walkers.

There are so many great stories from the day, and we hope to share a few in the coming days and months.

In the meantime, enjoy some photos that show the joy of being a part of a team and working on our own individual goals as a group!

Smiles and Medals. Happiness.

Together the Family (literally) achieves more.


Remix Rewards! 3 Medals for the Race of 2!

Even Coach Mick struggled through. Hmmm ... maybe train more next time.

And we all felt like champions.

5k and 10k Training, as well as general running conditioning


5K and 10K Training Plans Available


We have adapted our training to meet the needs of those who wish to either race shorter events or who are just in a 'holding patern' between training cycles.

This program allows you to race once, or multiple times, in a sequence, and keeps participants on the same workout trajectory as the entire group.

Great for a season of shorter races or for just enjoying the group training for a while.

C25K: Running For Beginners

Couch to 5k (C25K) is a great way to get ready for a 5k run with little or no experience.


It takes you from mostly walking to running over a 10 week process as you prepare for the event.

GetMovin with our C25K program, and find the power of progression, but also of group dynamic in the running experience.


We will meet on Mondays and Saturdays, with the 3rd run/walk on your own on Wednesday or Thursday.

Each workout takes about 30-40 minutes to complete, and there are 3 per week.

Half Marathon Programs

We will be featuring 2 different 1/2 Marathon Programs, and you can make the choice between an 18 WEEK training cycle or a 14 WEEK one.

We recommend the 18 week cycle because it is more gradual and will reduce the risk of injury, but we also understand that there is a need, on occasion, for a more accelerated program.

Just click on the image below and you will get access to the training program you wish to pursue.
