ABOUT OUR HEAD COACH

RIK AKEY

Road Runners Club of America certified Distance Running Coach American Red Cross certified in CPR, AED and First Aid

Prior to finding running, he was a 275-pound couch potato who couldn’t bend over and tie his own shoe (let alone climb a flight of stairs) without getting out of breath. Desperately wanting to improve his health and lose about 100 pounds, he started running. Rik’s been an avid runner since 2009 – running many 5Ks, 10Ks, half and full marathons, as well as long-distance relay races. And that 100 extra pounds? History!

 


ABOUT OUR MENTORS

Our mentors have been there and have all faced the physical and mental challenges of starting to run. They are active members of the From Fat to Finish Line running community and are available for support.

 


TESTIMONIALS

From Fat to Finish Line Run Your First Mile "graduates"

 

Right from the beginning I never felt alone and was encouraged and cheered on. Now I KNOW I can do anything and if I run into a setback, there are many ways around it to get to the same goal. This has been an awesome experience and one that has changed my life.

- Bonnie Vader, Fall 2016


I never thought I could be a runner! Coach Rik and the FFTFL tribe, through their support and training, gave me the confidence push myself. Now, here I am running and loving it! Truly life changing!

- Jodie Kroger, Fall 2016


I didn't think I would ever be able to run. This program and group have shown me anyone can be a runner. Regardless of weight and body style, we all have the capacity to do so much more than we ever dreamed!  

- Tracey Sackel, Fall 2016
