If you have always wanted to begin running, this could possibly be the program for you.   Begin at your own pace and build on what you start with.  You can only improve with the method used at Chizel-It Fitness Center in Owings Mills, Md.

Donna Harris, co-owner of Chizel-It Fitness Center, leads the running club.  The great thing about this program is that you do not have to come to the center with a running background.  If you can only run for one block, give it a try and see how far you can run at the end of training period in September.

“I start my running club the 1st Saturday in May with the goal of  starting my group off  running at their own pace  for one mile, which is a single lap around the mall. They do the best that they can taking their time, doing it at their own pace and then we build from there,” says Harris.

Harris is looking to run another marathon because her group has run the Baltimore Marathon for years and she is looking for another venue and a change of scenery.

Many participants have run their first marathon after joining the running club at Chizel-It Fitness Center. Runners have option of running a full marathon or a half marathon which is in October.

“We start them off with baby steps and we gradually build on that,” says Harris.
