It is no secret the huge fan of Jeff Galloway I am. I trained for my very first half marathon with a Galloway Group and have been a follower ever since. Without Jeff’s Run/Walk interval style of running, I would not be active. I LOVED his December JG 13.1 race, my recap is here. I was thrilled to be selected as a Galloway Blogger sharing Jeff Galloway Training and Motivation Tips because Jeff is probably one of the most encouraging people I have ever met.
I live in the same city as Jeff, and NO, I don’t stalk him. I did happen to see him running on the side of the road a few years ago and in my excitement screamed out to my husband… “Look its Jeff Galloway!!!!!!”. It’s not everyday you see an Olympian working out in public. Mr RWR, he is not into running and was like who ? I know, sigh.Now to be fair if I screamed out “LOOK ITS PHIL DALHAUSSER” or “OMG, TODD ROGERS!” I would have had his attention, as he is more into volleyball than running. But back to me and Jeff….
The first time I met Jeff was at the first session of his Galloway Half Marathon training group back in ’99. He is humble, kind and so encouraging. I try to make it a point to talk to him when I see him at a race expo which is often as he is the official runDisney Training Consultant.
If you know of anyone who is considering getting active, I highly recommend Jeff’s Run Walk program. I love his interval app as you can hear Jeff giving tips and encouragement as you are working out and training. His voice is so calming. If you are at an event where Jeff is present, go talk to him, especially if its your first race.

Truly I am so grateful to Jeff because of him, I am running and well because of running I am blogging. Maybe one day I will be able to do a retreat or trip with Jeff – he has a special on his Italy Tour through the end of this week.
