Endurance Sports and Psychology Center begun training 2012 half marathon runners yesterday at Piedmont High School, in Piedmont, California. The center's director, Dr. Cory Nyamora, is personally coaching the runners. He was born and raised in Kenya, the land of long distance runners, and educated and trained in the United States. He is a USA certified coach for both Track & Field as well as Triathlon.
The training at Piedmont, under floodlights but chilly conditions, consisted mainly of tips on how to run efficiently and safely. Dr. Nyamora demonstrated the right running and stretching techniques. He stressed the importance of learning and sticking to the right running techniques and stretching because that prevented injury.
The enthusiastic runners turned a chilly evening into warm smiles at the end of the training, which also consisted of running.
