"A few years ago, around 2010, I had a sickness that came on me. I was falling a lot. I had Vertigo. I had it for so long that I had to use a walker and then a cane. It seemed I was totally depending on the cane. Then a few weeks ago my daughters were sitting around talking about Fleet Feet Murfreesboro. They were discussing this program [WalkFit]. It sounded very interesting. So they signed up and so did I. We went the first week. I had my cane and my walker chair.
Since that day I have not used either of them and I thank God and Marina and the other members of Fleet Feet Murfreesboro for making me feel comfortable. Fleet Feet has helped me stop being afraid of falling. Also my mentors that walked with me let me walk at my own pace. No rushing. They allowed me to take a break whenever I needed it.
Again, I thank God, Marina, my mentors and my new friends at Fleet Feet Murfreesboro."

"No Boundaries: it’s where you learn how to run again. Let’s face it, Coach Daphne rocks. You’re also introduced to the running community, where you make a lot of new friends..."

"It’s hard to pick my favorite Fleet Feet program. I have been in three No Boundaries groups, Core Class, Get Fit, Half Marathon and Speed Class. Each one was awesome! Great coaches, mentors, and running buddies!"

"My favorite part of mentoring the WalkFit training program is getting to watch others over the course of the training build confidence that they can do this, and being there when they may doubt, telling them they can do it. The most rewarding part is watching them cross that finish line and become a member of the group of us all that know exactly what that feeling is like and getting to experience it with them."
