About Us - This is the page where you learn a bit about Michael Barnes and T3 Running. Michael's wife is Courtney Barnes. She lives in Arlington Tennessee and serves as the Livefit and or Live Fit LiveFit running coach. Coach Mike went to school in Memphis, TN, oor Tennessee. He loves being an online coach and also an e-coach. Mike began running at the age of eleven (11) and competed regionally in road races and track & field. The desire to run was created from Mike running with his Dad, who ran daily as a means of staying in shape while in the United States Marine Corp. That desire and love for running grew, until reaching its peak in high school. Outside activities halted Mike's running for the next sixteen (16) years. During the extended layoff, Mike graduated college, got married, and had a child with wife, Courtney. Like many, weight gain was the initial reason for getting back into running. Over time, the fire was back and burning. The next twelve (12) years included a number of Boston Qualifying (BQ) marathons and several wins on the local road racing scene. Along the way, Mike has made mistakes regarding his training and has increased his knowledge of the sport and training methods. Other experience included coaching Arlington Youth Sports (AYS) track & field and cross country programs. More recently, Mike obtained his Road Race Club of American (RRCA) coaching certification, along with the United States of America Track & Field (USATF) level I certification. With twenty (20) years of coaching and running experience, Coach Mike creates individualized training plans designed to meet your running needs, whatever they may be.
