You Should Join Our Running Group Because…

Did you know there’s a wealth of running talent at the New Balance stores? I am a 100-miler runner. I run slow, and for a long time I primarily ran on trails in mountains. I know about how a person can make profound transformation and re-write their own story. Let’s just say I wasn’t always an ultra-runner and if you’d care to know more I’m happy to tell you all about it. All you have to do is come run with me! Transformation was my “running experience” and the only one I am really warranted to relate from the heart space. I know about sub 5 minute miles and how to arrive at them only intellectually. The truth is there are many different types of runners with different motivations for running. I believe we encompass that phenomenon at New Balance Raleigh Durham.  My New Balance co-workers are very humble in their talents, so I’ll brag on behalf of them as I’m very proud to say I’ll be running with them during our Spring 5k training program. During the last training session, I had some very accomplished speedsters in my group looking to get faster while I had others who were trying to take dominion over their health. I want everyone to get the help they need.  This is why at 40 years of age I quit my IT job and became a certified coach. I didn’t feel like I was fulfilling my purpose. This season I’ve got some superb help who are going to help all of us, and I’d like to introduce them here. Bear in mind that many of us who work at New Balance RDU are passionate about fitness/running and would love to share that with others. We’re also passionate about the gear that helps us run, so don’t forget that the same people who are here to run with you and share their love of running with you are also the same people who are passionate about making sure you’re fitted in the right gear. Irrespective of brand, we focus on proper form running throughout the training season and are happy to provide opinions and experiences regarding footwear.

Scott Waldrop (RRCA Certified Running Coach) Raleigh Head Coach

First off, I’ll introduce myself for those that don’t know me. My name is Scott Waldrop. I’m an ultra-runner with multiple 100 and 50 milers completed. I’m an RRCA-certified running coach and the resident coach at New Balance (Raleigh). I’m an ambassador runner for The Herren Project. I have been featured in Endurance Magazine, USA Today, UltraRunning Magazine, and The News and Observer. I coach from a place of empathy and the experience I bring to the table is one of transformation. I know what it is to walk through the struggle with personal barriers and to make paradigm-breaking, 180 degree pivots in life.

Tuemoyaa Peterkin (or TJ) Raleigh Assistant Coach

TJ ran for Team Asics from ‘14-’16. He was a collegiate runner at Wake Forest University from ‘11-’1 and Barton College from ‘12-’14. He placed 2nd in The Penn Relays with Wake Forest for the triple jump. He broke the open 100 meter long jump record as well as triple jump record. TJ also coached at Millbrook High School and led his girls group to first place and his boys group to second in The Cap 8 Athletic Conference. TJ knows a thing or two about going fast with demonstrated results.

Arnett Hirsch (USATF Certified Running Coach) Durham Head Coach

Arnett started running at 49 years of age. He is now 60 and has since completed 12 marathons. He played football at The University of Tennessee and worked with Footlocker from 1982-2007 and the Track Shack in Florida where he joined the Marathon Fest training program. At Track Shack he was a fit specialist and Garmin specialist. He likes to focus on comradery when it comes to his run group. He meets people where they are, assesses their skills as individuals, and finds out what their goals are. He wants everyone to accomplish their personal PR (personal record).

Adam Pope (Durham Assistant Coach) Durham

Assistant Coach

Adam was a collegiate runner with Barton College from 2013-2017. He dropped a minute in regionals to qualify for states while attending Kipp Pride High School in Gaston. He knows how to take one from a 6 minute mile to a 4:45 over a progression of years and demonstrated grit. When asked about his own running journey and what wisdom he feels he can share, he knows how to, “…start with nothing and become competitive”.

So, come run with us! It’s free! The target race is “Race for the Cure” 5k on Saturday May 5th. There will be an interesting cast of like-minded characters amongst the sign-ups as always because as runners we’re all seekers of something. There’s motivation behind anyone willing to get up and propel their body through time and space, so you’ll be in good company. Runners who attend roughly 80% of all training runs receive a Raleigh – Durham New Balance training shirt prize as well as free entry to the “Race for The Cure”. New friends and free swag = win win!

You Should Join Our Running Group Because…

Did you know there’s a wealth of running talent at the New Balance stores? I am a 100-miler runner. I run slow, and for a long time I primarily ran on trails in mountains. I know about how a person can make profound transformation and re-write their own story. Let’s just say I wasn’t always an ultra-runner and if you’d care to know more I’m happy to tell you all about it. All you have to do is come run with me! Transformation was my “running experience” and the only one I am really warranted to relate from the heart space. I know about sub 5 minute miles and how to arrive at them only intellectually. The truth is there are many different types of runners with different motivations for running. I believe we encompass that phenomenon at New Balance Raleigh Durham.  My New Balance co-workers are very humble in their talents, so I’ll brag on behalf of them as I’m very proud to say I’ll be running with them during our Spring 5k training program. During the last training session, I had some very accomplished speedsters in my group looking to get faster while I had others who were trying to take dominion over their health. I want everyone to get the help they need.  This is why at 40 years of age I quit my IT job and became a certified coach. I didn’t feel like I was fulfilling my purpose. This season I’ve got some superb help who are going to help all of us, and I’d like to introduce them here. Bear in mind that many of us who work at New Balance RDU are passionate about fitness/running and would love to share that with others.

You Should Join Our Running Group Because…

Did you know there’s a wealth of running talent at the New Balance stores? I am a 100-miler runner. I run slow, and for a long time I primarily ran on trails in mountains. I know about how a person can make profound transformation and re-write their own story. Let’s just say I wasn’t always an ultra-runner and if you’d care to know more I’m happy to tell you all about it. All you have to do is come run with me! Transformation was my “running experience” and the only one I am really warranted to relate from the heart space. I know about sub 5 minute miles and how to arrive at them only intellectually. The truth is there are many different types of runners with different motivations for running. I believe we encompass that phenomenon at New Balance Raleigh Durham.  My New Balance co-workers are very humble in their talents, so I’ll brag on behalf of them as I’m very proud to say I’ll be running with them during our Spring 5k training program. During the last training session, I had some very accomplished speedsters in my group looking to get faster while I had others who were trying to take dominion over their health. I want everyone to get the help they need.  This is why at 40 years of age I quit my IT job and became a certified coach. I didn’t feel like I was fulfilling my purpose. This season I’ve got some superb help who are going to help all of us, and I’d like to introduce them here. Bear in mind that many of us who work at New Balance RDU are passionate about fitness/running and would love to share that with others. We’re also passionate about the gear that helps us run, so don’t forget that the same people who are here to run with you and share their love of running with you are also the same people who are passionate about making sure you’re fitted in the right gear. Irrespective of brand, we focus on proper form running throughout the training season and are happy to provide opinions and experiences regarding footwear.

Scott Waldrop (RRCA Certified Running Coach) Raleigh Head Coach

First off, I’ll introduce myself for those that don’t know me. My name is Scott Waldrop. I’m an ultra-runner with multiple 100 and 50 milers completed. I’m an RRCA-certified running coach and the resident coach at New Balance (Raleigh). I’m an ambassador runner for The Herren Project. I have been featured in Endurance Magazine, USA Today, UltraRunning Magazine, and The News and Observer. I coach from a place of empathy and the experience I bring to the table is one of transformation. I know what it is to walk through the struggle with personal barriers and to make paradigm-breaking, 180 degree pivots in life.

Tuemoyaa Peterkin (or TJ) Raleigh Assistant Coach

TJ ran for Team Asics from ‘14-’16. He was a collegiate runner at Wake Forest University from ‘11-’1 and Barton College from ‘12-’14. He placed 2nd in The Penn Relays with Wake Forest for the triple jump. He broke the open 100 meter long jump record as well as triple jump record. TJ also coached at Millbrook High School and led his girls group to first place and his boys group to second in The Cap 8 Athletic Conference. TJ knows a thing or two about going fast with demonstrated results.

Arnett Hirsch (USATF Certified Running Coach) Durham Head Coach

Arnett started running at 49 years of age. He is now 60 and has since completed 12 marathons. He played football at The University of Tennessee and worked with Footlocker from 1982-2007 and the Track Shack in Florida where he joined the Marathon Fest training program. At Track Shack he was a fit specialist and Garmin specialist. He likes to focus on comradery when it comes to his run group. He meets people where they are, assesses their skills as individuals, and finds out what their goals are. He wants everyone to accomplish their personal PR (personal record).

Adam Pope (Durham Assistant Coach) Durham

Assistant Coach

Adam was a collegiate runner with Barton College from 2013-2017. He dropped a minute in regionals to qualify for states while attending Kipp Pride High School in Gaston. He knows how to take one from a 6 minute mile to a 4:45 over a progression of years and demonstrated grit. When asked about his own running journey and what wisdom he feels he can share, he knows how to, “…start with nothing and become competitive”.

So, come run with us! It’s free! The target race is “Race for the Cure” 5k on Saturday May 5th. There will be an interesting cast of like-minded characters amongst the sign-ups as always because as runners we’re all seekers of something. There’s motivation behind anyone willing to get up and propel their body through time and space, so you’ll be in good company. Runners who attend roughly 80% of all training runs receive a Raleigh – Durham New Balance training shirt prize as well as free entry to the “Race for The Cure”. New friends and free swag = win win!

You Should Join Our Running Group Because…

Did you know there’s a wealth of running talent at the New Balance stores? I am a 100-miler runner. I run slow, and for a long time I primarily ran on trails in mountains. I know about how a person can make profound transformation and re-write their own story. Let’s just say I wasn’t always an ultra-runner and if you’d care to know more I’m happy to tell you all about it. All you have to do is come run with me! Transformation was my “running experience” and the only one I am really warranted to relate from the heart space. I know about sub 5 minute miles and how to arrive at them only intellectually. The truth is there are many different types of runners with different motivations for running. I believe we encompass that phenomenon at New Balance Raleigh Durham.  My New Balance co-workers are very humble in their talents, so I’ll brag on behalf of them as I’m very proud to say I’ll be running with them during our Spring 5k training program. During the last training session, I had some very accomplished speedsters in my group looking to get faster while I had others who were trying to take dominion over their health. I want everyone to get the help they need.  This is why at 40 years of age I quit my IT job and became a certified coach. I didn’t feel like I was fulfilling my purpose. This season I’ve got some superb help who are going to help all of us, and I’d like to introduce them here. Bear in mind that many of us who work at New Balance RDU are passionate about fitness/running and would love to share that with others. We’re also passionate about the gear that helps us run, so don’t forget that the same people who are here to run with you and share their love of running with you are also the same people who are passionate about making sure you’re fitted in the right gear. Irrespective of brand, we focus on proper form running throughout the training season and are happy to provide opinions and experiences regarding footwear.

Scott Waldrop (RRCA Certified Running Coach) Raleigh Head Coach

First off, I’ll introduce myself for those that don’t know me. My name is Scott Waldrop. I’m an ultra-runner with multiple 100 and 50 milers completed. I’m an RRCA-certified running coach and the resident coach at New Balance (Raleigh). I’m an ambassador runner for The Herren Project. I have been featured in Endurance Magazine, USA Today, UltraRunning Magazine, and The News and Observer. I coach from a place of empathy and the experience I bring to the table is one of transformation. I know what it is to walk through the struggle with personal barriers and to make paradigm-breaking, 180 degree pivots in life.
