***Important Announcement***
Registration for the October 31, 35th running of the Marine Corps Marathon begins today at 12p EST. As mentioned in January, we hope to put a team of MPH athletes on course for this event, training for which necessitates approximately two runs each week of interval training, or short and middle distances.

Preparation for this event will coincide with the launch of our new MPH Running Clinics. These one-day group clinics will soon be available in MINDBODY for $99, and will include:

  • The definition of running: history, technique and physics
  • The science of POSE Ⓡ running: perception, body weight application and the gravity concept
  • The application of POSE Ⓡ running: fall, POSE, pull; basic and intermediate drills
  • Video analysis (three filmed sessions over the course of the day)

The first three clinics will be held Sundays, May 2, May 16 and May 23 from 8a-12p, and are first available to athletes registered for the marathon. We will soon begin adding additional clinics on a monthly basis throughout the summer.

If you plan to register for the marathon this week, please contact us with the date of the clinic you would like to attend. Once you register for the marathon, forward us the email confirmation of your registration. We will release any remaining clinic spots for MPH athletes not running in October next week.

Congratulations Jerry C., for completing our Elements Workshop curriculum!

  3. Shana | April 7, 2010 at 11:53 am

    I’m in! I registered. My first marathon. Woohoo! So happy I’m doing it with Team MPH!

  5. jeremynurse | April 7, 2010 at 1:11 pm

    I registered too!! Can’t wait for the clinic…

  6. coach | April 7, 2010 at 1:44 pm

    Awesome, Team. If you haven’t already forwarded your registration confirmation to me, please do as soon as you can. Here’s the roster and clinic assignments so far:

    May 2:
    Amy S.
    Sean F.

    May 16:
    Mike S.
    Jenn J. (flex)

    May 23:
    Jen M.
    Sean M.
    Thom (flex)
    Christy (waiting on race registration confirmation)
    Josh O.

    Clinic TBD:

    We can add more clinic spots for just these first three if we need to—if more than 18 people sign up for the race.

    Who else? Let’s do this thing.


    • coach | April 7, 2010 at 5:12 pm


      This is outstanding. If you haven’t signed-up for the marathon yet, send me a note when you do with the date of the clinic you’d like to attend, and we’ll accommodate you.

      With the turnout today, our first clinic for athletes not in marathon training will be in June. We’ll post details about that next week.


  7. Jessica | April 7, 2010 at 2:06 pm

    Jer, May 2? Hmmmm… Should be a nice day. For a race.

    • Rob | April 7, 2010 at 3:07 pm

      Yea, you can practice your pose running as you trounce through the fire.

    • jeremynurse | April 7, 2010 at 3:17 pm

      Ooh good point, John can you move me to the May 16 session?

  8. ellebee2 | April 7, 2010 at 2:15 pm

    I’m in! May 2 would be great if there’s still room.


  9. derekb1 | April 7, 2010 at 2:24 pm

    I’m in. Shall be a fun experiment to see if POSE/CrossFit can improve upon my PR from 10 years ago.


    • Erez | April 7, 2010 at 5:15 pm

      The answer to this is yes and I look forward to witnessing it. In other words, come on.

  10. aschneidau | April 7, 2010 at 2:26 pm

    I just signed up for marathon! YIKES!

  11. Jen M. | April 7, 2010 at 3:14 pm

    this is going to be awesome! 🙂

  12. tbferg | April 7, 2010 at 5:34 pm

    Non-runners, like myself: any interest in forming a roaming cheerleading squad that day? Looks there are several spots where we could set up a “Go, MPH” sign and cheer on all our runners.

    • train2live | April 7, 2010 at 7:39 pm

      Hey T,

      Count me in on the cheering squad.

      Dave O

    • sblume | April 7, 2010 at 8:47 pm

      Count me in for the cheering as well, though with 19 runners we might have more athletes than spectators!


    • Mrs. F | April 7, 2010 at 9:55 pm

      I’m in the cheering section, too!

    • the janitor | April 8, 2010 at 8:54 am

      I would also like to participate in the cheering squad!

  13. TinkWants2GetStronger | April 7, 2010 at 8:02 pm

    I love it. This is going to be huge!!! Way to go MPH
