                    Rock On!!
Congratulations to all the Rockin Runners who completed the Rock & Roll Las Vegas Marathon and Half, I feel like a proud Daddy. It was very exciting watching so many familiar faces cross the finish line. Rockin Runners to date has touched over a 1,000 households. Whether you trained for a charity or for any other reason, I am always reminded of how much fun race day is. I see the friendships that were forged and I see the smiles and tears that show all your hard work was well worth the effort.  
It's all about the Family
 In 2012 we are looking to keep our family together, to do that, we created the Alumni Program, our graduate program. The Alumni Program is for the seasoned runner, jogger and walker. It is meant for the person who may want to train for their own event and doesn't need a coach to set up a calendar for them. This program is priced at only $99 per season!
Not to be forgotten, we will also have our now famous Couch Potato to Half Marathoner Program as well. Our coaches would like this to be their biggest year ever, so we have dropped the prices significantly to $139. Now that the prices have dropped, bring your friends, family and co-workers. Forward this e-mail and help us get the word out. You can also click on the Facebook and other social media sharing tools below.

Some Big Changes

Coach Don Giardina Is Back!!
 (on the West Side)

In 2008 we trained over 100 people for the LV Marathon. We were part of the Road Runners training program for Divine Racing at the time. In 2009 we became the Rockin Runners, and we re-wrote the training program from scratch. We wanted to emphasize safety and education. We have continued this commitment ever since. After taking a year off to train some of the most elite runners in Southern Nevada, Coach Don is returning to the front line on the West Side again to bring the very best out of our athlete's. Since we are training for Half Marathons, we have instituted track workouts every Wednesday at 5:30 pm as well at UNLV. 


UNLV Track Workouts for all Rockin Runners

As some of you may already know, Coach Don was the Womens Distance coach at UNLV. We want to bring those high quality training workouts to you, and the only way to get the most out of your training is by doing your speed work. If speed work does not interest you, you can come with the group and get your standard weekday training run in. I think you will find this type of training to be the key to even more successful events in your future. We plan on meeting every Wednesday at 5:30pm at the UNLV track. 


The Athlete's Foot is GONE....   

After 18 years of fitting up my friends and clients, I have sold my stores to another TAF store owner in San Diego. He purchased all of our inventory and shared his lofty goals of opening multiple stores throughout the Valley, he then decided not to open them back up two weeks later. So, much to my chagrin, TAF no longer exists in Las Vegas. I have been looking for a new place to send Rockin Runners that I could count on for a high level of customer service. I am fortunate enough to know the New Director of Operation's at Performance Footwear for over 18 years(he was my New Balance sales rep). His name is Tom Buck, and I know he will take great care of you. He does a similar Gait Analysis service to what I have performed for many years and offers a two week return policy. Please set up your appointments through Tom Buck at[masked]-1050.      


New Training Location for the West Side

I have always said that a good running shoe store is the best running partner you could have. Running shoe stores are resources for tons of useful information. A GOOD running store is your teacher, your trainer, your psychologist, your witch doctor AND they put you in comfy shoes necessary to keep you injury free. Since my store has closed and I have found a store with a passionate manager who wants to demonstrate his ability, I would like to announce that staring this January 8th at 7am we will start training from Performance Footwear on the southeast corner of Sahara & Fort Apache. The running courses over there are outstanding!

Rockin Rabbit Half Marathon 

April 7, 2012


For the past few years I have put on this event for various charities. In 2012 this race will be fully operated by a charity very near to my heart, Hope 4 Lives. This charity gives back 100%. The race and charity are run by Able Mcgee, a fellow Rockin Runner. Please help support this great charity and event.  It is a beautiful run the day before Easter. This event is in Boulder City and runs along Lake Mead. This is a challenging run with great reward. You won't be disappointed. 


A challenging first 4 miles, with a 700 foot gain and the rest has a 2000 foot drop to a small trail run on Historic Railroad tunnels. This run has a breath taking view of Lake mead. Run or walk the paved River Mountain Loop Trail until the end. This is a point-to-point run. To view the Map of the course go to: Key work Rockin Rabbit Run. Not a runner? Not a problem both runs 1/2 Marathon and 5k are walker friendly.  


Mission Statement for Hope 4 Lives 

We are a non-profit organization designed to help others with the fight against Breast Cancer, Aids and other life threatening diseases. We are committed to help others, so that no one ever gives up on the determination to thrive to survive. We want to create hope, faith, and the strength to continue surviving by believing in the Hope 4 Lives now, and well into the future, for generations to come.
