Run On! with Mitch Hayes

Run On! with Mitch Hayes

Hey guys!

Hope everyone is having a terrific Tuesday, I know I am. I attended the grand opening the other weekend of the Southlake, TX  location of RunOn! Talk about a lot of fitness fanatics in one place!

Thank you for stopping by the Medi-Dyne booth and stretching with us! While I was there I learned more about Camp Gladiator and My Fit Foods, which if you’re ever in the area I would definitely recommend checking them out. During the past week I have been contemplating what my next personal challenge would be. While at RunOn! I decided I would commit to training for a half marathon. The staff informed me that they provide classes that are geared toward all levels of runners to train for their distance goals.

 Mitch Hayes is the Training Class Manager for Run-On! specialty running stores, a Dallas/Fort Worth based chain. Mitch has been a part of the RunOn! team for five years. He and his staff of coaches train about 3,000 runners each year, getting them ready for running events anywhere from 5ks to full marathons. He was very enjoyable to speak with, as well as very knowledgeable on the Marathon Circuit and what it takes to be successful.

Medi-Dyne: What athletic activity do you enjoy the most?

Mitch: I enjoy obviously running marathons but have found a passion for doing CrossFit as well. It gives you a total body workout and it is nice to change things up a little.

Medi-Dyne: How many Marathons have you run in your life?

Mitch: I have run 11 Full Marathons and 20 or so half marathons throughout my life. I will be running my 5th Chicago Marathon this fall. It is by far my favorite to run!

Medi-Dyne: What running shoes do you wear and which would you recommend?

Mitch: Personally for myself I recommend Brooks Trance and Mizuno Nirvana running shoes.

Medi-Dyne: What advice would you have for someone thinking about signing up for their first marathon?

Mitch: The hardest part is signing up and committing to the training. It takes about 20 weeks to train for a marathon and to get your body fully ready. RunOn! Is a full service running store, providing classes that help runners of all levels gain the knowledge they need to be successful in distance running, to achieve their personal goals.

Medi-Dyne: What products of Medi-Dyne do you use?

Mitch: I use the Single Step Stretch which is also known as the ProStretch twice a day, every day.

Medi-Dyne: What do you like about the ProStretch?

Mitch: I like the ProStretch because it really works! I started using the product about 3 years ago when I started having tight calves. The pain was so terrible I didn’t know if I was going to be able to continue running marathons. That’s when I tried the ProStretch. I use it twice a day, every day. It cured my tight calves, and I haven’t had any issues since when I first started using the product.

Medi-Dyne: When you’re training runners do you recommend Medi-Dyne Products?

Mitch: Yes to anybody! When my runners are having issues with their calves or Plantar Fasciitis, I always recommend investing in a ProStretch.

Medi-Dyne: What’s your favorite “cheat” food?

Mitch: Definitely Hamburger and Fries without a doubt!

Medi-Dyne: What is something most people do not know about you?

Mitch: That I have 2 Harley Davidson’s and love spending my free time riding!

I hope everyone enjoyed getting to know Mitch a little better as much as I did! If you are ever in the Dallas area, on Wednesday evenings, Run-On! has a social run at all store locations. Come out and say hello to Mitch and enjoy a nice run!

Until next time follow Medi-Dyne on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram for healthy tips and special offers!

Happy Running!

Lauren
