A Runner’s Mind Presents: TRAINING FOR SUCCESS!

The Bay Area’s Best Local Training Program

Next 2018 TFS Race:
This season is an 8 week training cycle geared towards the SF half & full marathon and 5k on Sunday July 29th. It’s $200 for the 8 week program. If you refer a new team member to the program you will get 25% off your entry ($150). 

If you’re looking for a half marathon PR, I’d suggest the 2nd half – the first half is more scenic and beautiful but much more challenging.
As always, please remember that even if you aren’t training for a race or that specific race selection this season, it’s always great to have you guys return to TFS for the team camaraderie and to stay fit. Ya’ll know firsthand that the team bond is very close and that you feed off each other’s energy in workouts.

Team workouts are Wednesday evenings at ARMBG @ 6:30 pm, and Saturday mornings 8 am at Sawyer Camp Trail or a different local Bay Area trail.

I hope to see you guys in June, or on a Tuesday night ARM run before that!

We came up with “Training For Success” in the winter months of 2015. Our intention, right from the beginning, was to create an opportunity for our running community to gather, challenge each other, strive, excel and achieve their very best. As the great Steve Prefontaine said: ”To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift.”

We have now been running the program for three seasons, which have seen athletes of all distances and levels compete in races in Hawaii, San Francisco, New York, and Chicago. We tailor our programs to meet each individual athlete’s needs and goals. While our running shoes may carry us to the farthest ends of the world, our programs create such an incredible sense of dedication to running, camaraderie, family, and fun that many of our athletes return season after season.


Dom Chelini (out of date)
Dom is an incredibly passionate distance runner who continually seeks to not only improve himself, but also to help other striving athletes improve and find themselves through running and training.
“Although I ran track and cross country all four years of high school at Junipero Serra, I credit the start of my education about athletic discipline and pain tolerance in training to six years of Pop Warner football for the Bayside Broncos,” Dom say. “I had great coaches in both sports; Jim Garrity, Will McCarthy, and Ron DiMaggio. After several years without training, in the fall of 2013 I decided to start running again to lose weight. Soon I rediscovered my love for running and got back into the competitive nature of it. I lost 40 pounds and have gone from a 1:30 half marathon to a 1:14 in less than three years. And I’m not stopping there either, as I plan on running 1:12 or under this year and running my first marathon! I’m looking forward to my second year of leading workouts for the TFS program!”
