Workout recap from member Alex Gonzalez
Coach Mike led of a group of 10 through a series of warmup exercises in the pitch blackness of the 6 am start time. This was followed by some hard knocking 5 x 600 intervals capped with 200 recoveries. Great run. Been years since I ran with a group of gifted male and female runners.

Testimonials for Coach Mike Nahom and the Running Club:
"I’m so happy I joined the running group this year coached by Mike Nahom through the New Milford Fitness & Aquatics Club. I wanted to begin running races and strengthen my running gait and pace. I found that and so much more! I’ve met so many nice people and new friends. I am so glad I joined. Not only did Coach Mike’s running drills improve my running time, but I’ve loved the running groups laughter and shared experiences! I’ve already run two races and looking forward to my first half-marathon this spring. Thank you Coach Mike and Michelle! ~Jo Gallagher
