Who is Jeff Galloway?
• A world-class athlete. As a member of the 1972 Olympic team, Jeff competed against the world's best athletes in Europe, Africa, and the former Soviet Union. He broke the U.S. 10-mile record (47:49) in 1973 and has a six-mile best of 27:21.
• Founder of the Galloway Marathon Training Program.
• Coach to over 200,000 runners and walkers.
• Monthly columnist for Runner's World magazine.
• Motivational speaker giving over 200 talks per year across the country.
• Race Director for the National Marathon to Fight Breast Cancer, the only marathon dedicated solely to raising funds for breast cancer research.

Jeff's simple and proven training method has made finishing marathons and half marathons possible for almost everyone and without injury or pain. Jeff's quest for the injury-free marathon training program led him to develop group training programs in 1978, and to author Runner's World articles which have been used by hundreds of thousands of runners of all abilities. His training schedules have inspired the second wave of marathoners who follow the Galloway run-walk, low mileage, three-day, suggestions to an over 98% success rate.

Jeff and his wife Barbara are residents of Atlanta, GA. Together they run an average of seven marathons together each year, including the Walt Disney World Marathon that is a marathon that Jeff has done in every year since its inception in 1994.

Mantras That Keep You Positive
When you focus on a positive mantra and say it over and over, you shift mental control to the frontal lobe and can gain control over your attitude.  This can stop the stress-induced negative attitude hormones and replace them with positive attitude peptides that lock into billions of cells throughout the body. 

Here are our favorites:
Don't give up
I can do it
This is my day
I feel good
I am strong
I have control
I'm getting it done
I feel confident
I'm running smooth
I will prevail
The spirit is strong
