TESTIMONIALS

  • The idea that I could help someone while doing something that's also good for myself physically and mentally seemed like a no brainer, heck why aren't more people doing it!

  • Guiding has brought me such pleasure in a sport I have come to love over the past four years. I am a 27 year old athlete who wants to help anyone I can to accomplish their goals from sprints to half's and any training in between. Let's have some fun!

  • Though most guides humbly disagree, I consider guiding to be a purely selfless act. I mean, they give up their own race - while still taking on all of the same effort - simply to allow me to race. Just incredible people.

  • Having run close to 40 marathons, things were getting a bit stale. Being able to participate as a guide absolutely reinvigorated my passion to run.  I am now able to enjoy the sport I love more than ever, while making it possible for a visually impaired athlete to do the same. WIN-WIN.

  • “As a totally blind man hoping to focus on my abilities, I believe I can and want to run to my peak potential. Without a guide, every pothole, crack, curb, branch or even other runner could end my run. Every slight direction choice, adjustment, and verbal warning when avoidance is not possible are the essential gifts which give me freedom to run. The only greater gift is the kindness and choice of my wonderful guides to make this possible each and every time we become a team.”
