Your 26.2 was created for runners who would like to set PR's (personal records) year after year, and do so injury-free. The philosophies of our parent company, QT2 Systems, have developed hundreds of PR triathlon performances as well as Ironman champions. Elite level coach and Founder of QT2 Systems, Jesse Kropelnicki now brings these same philosophies to YOU: the beginner, advanced, or elite level marathoner! Like QT2 Systems, Your 26.2 does not charge money for prepackaged programs! Instead, we provide you with a detailed training program based on your specifics, limiters, and life's logistics. We also provide you with unmatched support and education. If you would like a prepackaged training program, you can have it for FREE, here: Free Marathon Training Plan.
