Rogue is the perfect group for triathlon training! Fantastic coaches, quality workouts and the camaraderie will help prepare you for any tri distance. It's a very well-organized group that cares about helping its athletes reach their personal goals. Thanks, Rogue!
Rogue is the best overall marathon and half marathon training program in Austin! My coaches really worked with me to get me ready for my races and help me through some tough times. The macro cycles with recovery weeks built in kept me from burning out or getting injured. I also liked the summer training options in the early morning, and support on the long runs was great. I also really enjoy the Rogue running community -- a great group of people/friends. Thanks much!
This was my first marathon training program with Rogue (or any group). I trained for my first marathons on my own and will never go back to training alone again. Not only did I finally meet my goal time, I met a great group of people who are the best motivation to run. Thanks, Rogue!
The Rogue program helped me rekindle my passion for running. After five months of training in Coach Amy Anderson's group, I conquered the hills of the Nike Women's Marathon, shaving 40 minutes off of my year-over-year marathon time and seven minutes off of my nine-year-old personal best. An entire group of us, who met through Rogue, continue to train together and set new goals. There's nothing better than a good coach and teammates who make you want to get up and run!
This was the experience of a life time! Rogue COMPLETELY prepared me and Bobby was the most giving, encouraging, loving and passionate coach. Not only was he awesome at the workouts but he kept us connected through countless e-mails of encouragement. His dedication to our goal is what got me through the mental,spiritual and physical journey. I honestly don't know if I would have made it without him. I needed the constant attention and encouragement to get me through. That 300.00 I paid to Rogue represents 20 years of therapy. I am a different person.
Coach Amadora, Thank you for all your encouragement - at any speed! Your enthusiasm is contagious, and I will keep those words in my ears on those hard run days. You're awesome!
After trying marathon training on my own, it took Rogue to make me a marathon runner/finisher. I couldn't have done it without Rogue.
I can honestly say that without Rogue my 4:53 on a hot day would have been a DNF. Thank you Rogue for pushing me and thank you for La Dera Norte. As I turned on Dean Keeton I knew I could do it because of my training. Thanks again for a great year!
Rogue is truly for everyone at all levels of running. Whether it is your first run or you are a marathon racer, Rogue is the place to train. This was my first running/training experience and had a wonderful time competing against myself and meeting my team and coaches. The coaches are passionate about what they do and are eager to help and are genuine. I can't say enough good things about Rogue and how wonderful my experience has been. THANK YOU ROGUE!
Training with Rogue has made me a whole lot tougher, and a whole lot happier. I can't wait for the next challenge!
I am hooked on running now because of Rogue. I went from beginner to finishing two half marathons! Thank you, Rogue!
I have been running for many years, but I never made improvements until I joined a Rogue program. It was amazing to me to reach goals above and beyond what I thought possible for myself. Rogue training has been the greatest running investment I have ever made.
I started the marathon training program not knowing what to expect and didn't think I would enjoy the 20+ mile training runs. Halfway through training, my confidence was up, and I was already planning my 2nd and 3rd marathons before even running my first. Rogue lived up to the high expectations I had, and I am already signed up to train for marathon #2 and will probably be back for #3. Way to go to the best marathon training program in Austin!
Rogue encouraged me to show up and start trying and instructed me to take walk breaks, if needed. At 41, and totally stressed out and overweight, it was perfect for me. I lost 24 pounds, virtually eliminated my stress level as the CEO of a start-up company, and was turned on to something I really love and can do with my wife and kids for the rest of my life. It was a life changing experience for a non-runner. I'm hooked!
Just a shout out to everyone! Thanks to Ruth and all the coaches (YAY GINNY! YAY RAMSAY!) for such a great group! And thanks for the after-party!!! And spraying me with cold water on the run! I Love being an IRON CHICK!
Having never done a triathlon and never ridden a bike or swam for anything other than recreation, I knew that joining a triathlon training group would be key to taking on the challenge of the Danskin. Not only was the level of training excellent, but the diversity of the group was a pleasant surprise. Despite the different fitness levels, no one was held back, no one was pushed beyond their limits, yet all were challenged and IMPROVED. I smashed my goal time for the Danskin by 5 minutes. I have since heard that of all the Danskin Triathlons across the country, Austin is the most challenging course. The coaches are wonderful, the group seems to naturally draw together amazing women, and I became educated about triathlons, learned how to bike and swim in a race, and made dear friends. Even with the education and fitness gained, I will continue to return to Iron Chicks in the spring. I may do the Danskin, I may do another of the many triathlons offered, but I'll get ready for them with the Iron Chicks.
"I am Rogue." For some reason, I kept telling myself this over and over during the marathon. Steve's words kept running through my head, too. Expect success. Expect the unexpected. Expect to over come. Expect success. GREAT mantra that kept me going!
Rogue transformed me into a passionate RUNNER! I hadn't run more than 3 miles before my training. Now,it's a bond that will remain within me forever. I had the greatest coaches that stuck by me through my stress fracture and ended up finishing the AustinHalfMarathon in 1:55:39! Pretty awesome for my first half. Never could have done it without Rogue!
I would never have believed what I could accomplish as a runner when I signed up for a Rogue 5K Boot Camp, but the training, coaching and community that came with the Rogue programs in which I participated helped me exceed my wildest expectations for my running career when I ran a half marathon distance less than six months after I began running. The support of my coach and classmates and the well-structured Rogue programs were very instrumental in my sticking to my goals.
Coach Amadora, Thank you for all of the inspiring e-mails, and useful information! You truly are a great coach and kind person. Most of all, thank you for all the beer! You are the best!
I have been involved in other triathlon training programs in the past and I feel confident in saying that this program was by far the most helpful in preparing me for the race. The coaches are amazing and truly inspirational.
Rogue training works! The quality workouts prepare you for successful long runs. I ran my first half marathon, and I enjoyed every step of it, thanks to the motivation and support of Rogue. I will sign up again, and I will encourage my friends to run with Rogue. Thank you; thank you. This was a fabulous experience.
Rogue did it again! Its mission is to create a community, and that's what they did. The training, the organization, and the coaching motivated me and helped me do my best, and the community reinforced that. On top of that, it was loads of fun, and of course, the whole program challenged me to push the limits of my fitness and improve.
I love Rogue Running! I felt so prepared & strong for my races. I ran a PR for 3M & ran the Austin Half 17 minutes faster than last year! I would never have been able to do that alone & Rogue has been such a great support system with great coaches & a great community. Rogue has been a great investment in my health & well-being!
Rogue and Amy Anderson prepared me for the biggest physical event in my life (the Marathon) and there is no doubt in my mind I would not have successfully made it through that finish in one piece with no injuries without them! MAJOR love for Rogue and Amy!
Rogue gave me the mental as well as the physical tools needed to complete the marathon. Highly recommended. If it's not Rogue, it's not running!
There is a "vibe" with Rogue that I really enjoy. The coaches and volunteers are part of a running community, it is their passion,and it shows! The program is well rounded and keeps me excited to run through six months of hard training! I would recommend Rogue to any of my friends who may be looking to run their first marathon and not "just finish."
I had been talking about running a marathon for a while but did not know how to get started. I joined the beginners fall marathon program three years ago with Rogue. It was well-organized, I met like-minded people, and the coaching staff was knowledgeable and encouraging. I have completed three marathons since and have trained with Rogue for every single one. I have had such a great experience and have seen great improvement in my running that I don't see myself ever leaving Rogue!
This was my 5th Rogue experience and it just gets better and better. You all clearly care about the athletes--regardless of skill/talent level--and you have a tremendous program.
After sharing my last program with friends who were visiting from San Antonio and Charlotte, North Carolina, they were all surprised about the information, runs, discounts, and facilities that were a part of the Rogue program.
I think Rogue is the unquestioned leader in training in the state of Texas. A runner would be hard pressed anywhere to find a better program with better trainers & coaches. I hope to be a Rogue runner for a long time.
Coach Bobby, Thanks for teaching me the importance of community when running and especially when training for a marathon. I couldn't do it without you! Thank you!
Carolyn is a great coach! For me, she pushes enough to encourage and go beyond what I would do myself, but not so much that I feel overwhelmed. We lovingly refer to her as "Coach Tuff Luv". She doesn't want any excuses.
Coach Cindy, DAWN has never been better! YOU are the top of the morning! Thank you-
The Rogue experience gave me the confidence and the training I needed to become a true runner. I had no idea it would affect me quite as much as it did and I will forever be grateful for what everyone at Rogue provided for me. Thank you Rogue!
I could barely run five miles at the beginning of the marathon training program, and six months later I finished the New York City Marathon with a smile on my face. I never dreamed I could accomplish something like that. Thanks to Rogue, I have a memory I will cherish for the rest of my life and an experience I will tell my children and grandchildren about.
