Testimonials from ACT Running Clients
"I've done many (many) different types of workouts through the years, but ACT is the first I've ever done where the alarm goes off at 5:40 a.m., and my feet hit the floor. I don't hit the snooze button for another few minutes of sleep because I look forward to my run knowing how good I'm going to feel for the rest of the day."
"Coach Ashley has changed my life. Become A Runner program was a great way for me to start running- first time runner. She is knowledgeable, not intimidating and knows how to motivate and support!"
"You have an awesome and amazing coach!!! Stick with it and she will make a believer out of you. Because of her, I now can call myself a runner."
"Ashley made me do it: I ran my first 5k this morning. All my life I've hated running. Now, I think I get it, at least a little bit anyway. Thanks, Coach. Here's to the next milestone." Susanne
"Finished the 5K! Pretty excited. Thanks to Coach Ashley for keeping me going and being a great coach!" Mitra
"You see you don’t know what you and the others have done for me and how much I appreciate being able to run with ya’ll. I’ve been wrestling for weeks trying to find the right words to let you and the other post B.A.R. folks know how helpful it’s been and still can’t find the right words." Bob
"Coach Ashley is an amazing running coach along with being a wonderful person. Her programs range from very beginner 1-2mile run walks to full marathon training. I'm a person who could do a 2mi but anything more than that would leave me sore for DAYS and ready to puke... I'm happy to say just two weeks ago with Ashley's help I ran The Cap 10K!!! Seriously! Not just jogged but I completed the whole race with 12min miles and her by my side the whole time helping with visualizations and breathing techniques. She was so wonderful during the training, but I did not expect her to coach me side by side through the whole race. It's really a testament to her beautiful spirit and commitment as a coach."
"Thank you, Ashley, for your guidance and support!" Anne

"Thanks Ashley - I think all on the team agree you are one helluvah coach and we could not have come this far without your support and enthusiasm." Erin
"Thanks for everything this past 8 weeks! The class was exactly what I was after. I can run 3 miles now without hurting my knees and even wake up before 6 :)" Kristina
" I'm just happy to be still going and to have that same group of "for reallers" to meet up with throughout the week. There are those of us who need that support group just to make it to the starting point, let alone the finish line. I'm very glad to have the BAR alums to lean on. Y'all just don't know!! I would have quit SO long ago, but I owe all my current "good jean days" to you guys!!" E.H.
