When I joined No Boundaries, I was initially hoping to just get back into shape.  I got that and much more.  With the help of amazing coaches and mentors, I have found a passion I never knew I had before.  I'm not Cancer Girl anymore - I'm a runner.  - Lara H., No Boundaries 2013 Graduate

In the spring/summer of 2012 I was looking for a way to continue my weight loss that I started with an online weight management program, as only a few months earlier I maxed out at over 300 lbs. I was always reluctant to join a gym since I felt like I would not fit in. I was told of Fleet Feets No Boundaries program from a family member that was in the store, and the more I read about the programs amenities, I felt comfortable that this program was worth trying. The program was easy to follow and catered to all types of runners, new ones like myself, people returning to running, and people that might not have succeeded on their own. It all started with this 5k program. Having now down numerous races, including a full-marathon, I have lost over 65 lbs so far, 8 inches off my waist, made numerous friends and have learned that I am a Runner.” - Michael B., No Boundaries 2012 Graduate
