Start tracking your training for your upcoming 5K, 10K, half-marathon or marathon using tools perfected by pro-women athletes—USA Champion Lauren Fleshman and Irish Olympian Ro McGettigan (that's us)! This training journal will keep you accountable, help you set and achieve goals, make training more fun, and record all your efforts in a beautiful and unique design (check out the photos to the left!)
We cherish our training diaries & know why they are such an important tool. A training diary is integral in tracking progress, and the patterns which emerge help us figure out what does and doesn't work for our training and racing. But, we also believe that a training diary can be so much more than a recording device.
What we've created is an inspirational training tool for athletes that is fun to keep up with. Between the two of us, we have competed for over 35 years at the highest levels of sport: from youth track clubs up to the biggest stage in the world: The Olympic Games. Our biggest breakthroughs haven't come from physical preparation alone...they've come from approaching our running more holistically, with attention to the mind and spirit as much as the body. This training diary includes the secrets and tricks we have learned along the way to accomplish that. Give the gift of self-development and awareness today!

"We were simply smitten with the B.I.A. Training Journal. We review a lot of different workout products, but this one really stood out for doing more than just tracking facts and miles. It gives women a place to dream, feel and doodle. It gives them a place to not just reach their fitness goals -- but to feel proud about themselves inside and out!" – Fit Bottomed Girls™
