South Bay Runners Club Coach Mark Minichiello – Fit Armadillo

South Bay Runners Club Coach Mark Minichiello

South Bay Runners Club’s Mark Minichiello Shares Running Tips

After running into marathoner and running coach Mark Minichiello while running in Manhattan Beach a few months ago, I knew I had to have him on the show! Enjoy running tips from this South Bay Runners Club (SBRC) coach and marathoner and learning more about the amazing running club he's helped create. If you run in the South Bay of southern California, you have probably run along at least one member without even knowing it. And while elite athletes like past podcast guest Cheyne Inman belong to SBRC, you don't have to be an elite to run with this group. Mark shares more about the various sub groups of the South Bay Runners Club and an inspiring story about a newer member who lost 70 lbs after joining the club, but never felt like anything other than an athlete while training with this group of runners. While we chat a little bit about marathoning on today's episode, you definitely want to come back for more marathon tips from Mark tomorrow when I'll share the second half of our conversation that centers on tips for Marathon Monday for those of you prepping for the Boston Marathon.
