What is EZ8 Running?

What is now EZ8 Running first began as a little 8-week running program for a group of women who wanted a little additional exercise, one year during the holiday months between Thanksgiving and the New Year. It was designed for women who ran an average of a ten-minute mile and had the desire to run an eight-minute mile; hence the name, "easy eight". The EZ8 Running Program was such a success that the women requested it continue.

Christina Lucy developed this program in 2002 and recently turned it into a certification program through NESTA (National Excercise and Sports Trainers Association). The EZ8 program teaches technique, form and effective breathing. So, not only are you running faster and further, you are running better and more efficiently.
