$49.50!!!! The email states that's a 50% discount which is not true. The actual price is $189. I know because I've looked into it before since I live in the Atlanta area. But honestly I am too cheap for $189.00. So what could I do but sign up. I am if nothing else thrifty and I couldn't let a savings of $139.50 pass me up. Oh yeah and it could make me a better runner.

Here's what is said on the website about the Running School

At this highly motivating class taught by Jeff, he gives you the information you need to reach your goals. Jeff's school offers a unique system of elements that has reduced injury rate down to almost zero, with a very high rate of success. You’ll receive an individualized running form evaluation and priority email access to Jeff, after the class. The format allows everyone to ask questions at any time, so each can get the individual info needed.

I'll be sure to report back. I hope I don't find myself thinking what the heck am I doing awake at 7:00am on a Saturday in the cold with these crazy running people...
