Be The Runner is Marty Beene's running coaching and personal training business.
Personalized running coaching... from someone just like you. I work with every individual to develop a program to help you achieve your running goals. I'm not an Olympian or world record holder - instead, I'm just like you, and I use my years of experience to help guide you toward those goals. I am also a certified personal trainer (by the National Academy of Sports Medicine), as well as a Fitness Nutrition Specialist and Senior Fitness Specialist. I hold a Level 2 coaching certification in endurance events from USA Track & Field.
