The physical is obvious.  You run to train to a target, a race or a distance.  Then, as your heart rate increases you fill with courage.  You fill with hope.  You become stronger.  Your spirit soars.

Yes, training with Team Persevere focuses on the spiritual…training to a much bigger target.  

Team Persevere is committed not just to the physical, emotional, and mental elements of running but to experiencing the spiritual being in touch with a higher power. 

USA Track & Field is the United States national governing body for the sports of track and field, cross country running, road running and racewalking.

The celebration of spirit, faith, and spirituality is the mission of Team Persevere. Recognizing that it is God, YHWH, Allah, the Lord, Jesus Christ, or a "higher power" with whom you connect is what sets Team Persevere apart from other endurance running and walking programs.

"Have nothing to do with godless myths and old wives’ tales; rather train yourself to be godly.  For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.”  

1 Timothy 4:7-8

"but those who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint."

Isaiah 40:31

“The five S’s of sports training are:  Stamina, Speed, Strength, Skill, and Spirit; but the greatest of these is Spirit."

Ken Doherty

As children, once we stood up and let go of the couch, a chair, or whatever piece of furniture we pulled ourselves up on, we lit out to hesitantly wobble a few steps before collapsing onto the floor.  From there it was a pretty quick progression to go farther and farther until one day we chose to go faster.  Running!  What freedom! 

Farther?  Faster?  The strength and endurance to run long distances…we can do this!  It’s within us!  Let’s nurture it.  Let’s refine it.  Let’s celebrate it!  Get personalized training with Team Persevere in Baltimore.

“Let us run with perseverance the race that is set before us.”  Hebrews 12:1
