This 12-week program begins January 8, and includes three coached workouts a week, core-strengthening training, long runs for days when energy is a-flowin', quality workouts that teach speed and hill training, and ways to run more efficiently, such as running drills and exercises. The program also offers extra services including an introduction to the terminology and basic practices of running, nutritional information for junk-food joggers, a gait analysis by a shoe specialist, and even goal-setting ideas. Trainers give helpful tips to prevent injury and introduce Trigger Point Technology to program participants. Runners are equipped with a technical-fabric training T-shirt for the sleekest running styles as well as a training schedule. A discount at Rogue Equipment is also part of the deal, so runners can up the ante on their workout wardrobes. The Running Resolution program is ideal for beginners, those with a bit of mileage under their soles, or jailbirds on the run.

Most runners simply want to cross the finish line of their first marathon. Steve Sisson wanted Austin’s runners to set loftier goals, so he created Rogue Running and hired a staff of experienced and decorated coaches. Steve himself is tribute to what drive can accomplish: he was a three-time all-American cross-country and track runner at the University of Texas, and is currently the assistant coach for the women’s track-and-field team.
His vision is to pass on that sense of discipline as well as advanced running techniques in a training program tailored according to how hard runners want to work, rather than how frequently they’ve spotted Jesse Owens in the supermarket. Using this method, the Rogue crew has readied runners for everything from 5K races and marathons to triathlons and trail runs. One of Steve’s ultimate goals is to create a thriving running community. To this end, Rogue Running has trained more than 10,000 runners of varying skill levels, and opened retail stores that outfit the community with athletic apparel and running shoes.
