This testimonial is from a very close friend (and of course a MRTT member) who used the Run Builder program from He and She Eat Clean to better her half and full marathon time. I can vouch that her results are 100% legit and just literally seeing the changes in her body has been AMAZING. I frequently got text messages after every milestone/victory she had in her running along the way. If you follow these programs THEY WORK!!!!

- Ran 4 straight miles (previously did run/walk intervals) sub 10 min (9:46, 9:50, 9:17, 9:33 final time 38:27) for the first time!
At the end of 5 weeks (from Natalie): Ok – I had to share this because I’m so EXCITED!!!!!! My 1 mile time 5 weeks ago was 9:14. Tonight: 8:28!!!! Everything was the same: time of day, interval of run 3:00 min walk 30 sec, route, and even timing device (mapmyrun). The only difference was that it was a lot HOTTER! (86 with a feels like 91!) I started eating a little more this week and broke through my plateau! Here are before and after for the end of 5 weeks! Can’t wait to see what happens as I enter the new phase!
At the end of 8 weeks (from Natalie): I had to check in again because I thought I was going to cry when I put a bathing suit on!!! After 8 weeks, I’ve been able to fit back into clothes I haven’t worn in years and they fit BETTER than when I first bought them! Here is my before picture and my bathing suit picture today. (Pardon the red face – It was still red after my 20 minutes of sprints!) I’ve completed 8 weeks of the Run Builder and been eating about 90% percent clean! (I have a snow cone once a week with cream on top! :-) ) I LOVE the Run Builder!!!! I never dreamed I’d look better at 42 than I did at 32! :-)
At the end of 10 weeks (from Natalie): I just timed my 1 mile after almost 10 weeks on the program. I’m training hard over this 2 weeks because my race is at the end of the 12 week mark. I didn’t want that to reflect in my time so I timed it tonight. Drum roll…..7:58 on mapmyrun!!! I had to use that the first time instead of my watch and I know it’s not quite as accurate. Still, the improvement has been HUGE!
- Week 1 day 1 – 9:15
- End of Week 5 – 8:28
- Almost end of Week 10 – 7:58!
I have NEVER seen that time EVER – not even using mapmyrun!!! I LOVE this program! I’m beyond excited! Not only have I lost 15 lbs, I can hold a plank 5 min and shaved 1 min 15 sec off my mile. Plus, I had an epic run tonight! I ran my fastest 8 mile time ever – 1:20:28! I shaved off 3 minutes from my previous fastest! I also had my fastest 4, 5, 6, and 7 mile times too! I decided to add a cool down 1.3 to make it a 15k. Even running that much slower I still had my fastest 15k time – 1:35:39! I love the program so much, I’m starting the program over! Bonus: I was down again this morning. I weighed in at 143.8. I started at 155.8! Grand total of 12 pounds!
Additional Testimonial: I did it!!! I rocked the Soldier Half with a 2:18:41! My previous fastest was a 2:21:05. I probably would’ve finished a little faster but my calves started cramping around mile 10 and I had to slow down. (I tend to have problems with that anyway and my longest run over the past few weeks was a 15k.) I felt so strong!!! I couldn’t be more excited!
