Are you ready to check off that Marathon bucket list? Come join our biggest marathon training season of the year…L.A. Marathon training! Our training plan will get you ready to run those 26.2 miles with confidence and support from our fellow Pacers. Coach Mike will help you get through your training with weekly encouragement and guidance. He is an experienced Marathoner himself aside from his smiles, laughter, advice, support, he understands the process, the struggle, and the dedication it takes to conquer your first or next marathon!

  • Most Memorable Race:LAM 1993, I had no idea what I was doing with virtually no training!
  • Favorite race to run:​ NLPOA Al Rivera Menudo Run 5K. It has great memories for me in my younger days. It’s basically the race that made me fall in love with running.
  • Best part of running:​ The connection you make with different people and the stories you share.
  • Favorite post-race meal:​ A Pastrami sandwich from Arry’s in Montebello, with some pastrami fries and a nice cold Dos XX Lager.
