Great job, Coach Sue!


 Thanks Jeff for taking the time to share your feedback.

"Good Morning, Coach Sue!  Just wanted to tell you that I did 1600 yards this morning in 30:40.  I can't believe how much my time has come down in just a month of working with you.  Must be because I kept my eyes open!  Also can't believe how much less fatigued I am at the end.  Thanks for your help, and see you Friday." - Jeff B.

run club herrickWelcome to ET Run Club

ET Run Club is FREE and open to everyone - regardless of fitness level or running experience!! The experienced and certified coaches of EXPERIENCETriathlon invite you to come join one of our regular group runs that are held on Saturday mornings at 8 AM.

We run outside year round, and we run in small groups according to distance and pace. The distance typically ranges from 3 to 7 miles on any given run, and we make sure no one runs alone.
From November through April we run the streets and riverwalk of picturesque downtown Naperville. We meet at Starbucks 22 E. Chicago Ave.  Click here for directions.
One of the highlights of our group run is the coffee social held after every run -- after all, who doesn't run to EAT?

Why I Love Running

Running.  A sport that can be done anywhere and the only required equipment is a determined mindset, a good pair of running shoes and some comfortable moisture-wicking clothing.  Besides being convenient and relatively inexpensive, running offers numerous health benefits.  More people are running 5K races and marathons than ever before.  An even larger number simply run for fitness and never go near a race starting line.


Why do I love running?  Because it makes me feel I can accomplish the impossible.  It satisfies my yearning for adventure and it gives me moments of clarity otherwise unreachable.  Problems and thoughts that have been swirling around in my mind disappear when I'm deep in the rhythm of my footsteps and my favorite tunes on my mp3 player.  I often discover the perfect solution during my run or when I'm done with my workout.  Simply put, running makes me a better person and a better Coach.
