Hi there! We are Kevin and Angie Brown, and we are the creators of Real Life Runners. We started this site as a resource for runners and other health-minded individuals to get on track to healthy living. Our lives were meant to be awesome, and we want to show people the shortcut to better health through running, exercise, and nutrition.
At Real Life Runners, we focus on quality over quantity, with a distinct purpose to every run and workout. We focus on strengthening the muscles needed to support you as a runner, to avoid the vicious cycle of injury and re-injury that many runners face. Our training plans incorporate each and every runner's unique talents and abilities, and are adjusted to meet the needs of each athlete.
Angie is a physical therapist, with a doctorate degree from the University of Miami and a bachelors degree from the University of Notre Dame. She has a passion for health, wellness, food, and fitness. She has been practicing physical therapy for 10 years, and during that time, she has worked with clients ranging from 7 to 103 years old. She has seen first-hand the difference between people who take care of themselves and those that do not, so she wanted to help to educate more people on the importance of healthy lifestyle changes now, in order to live an active, vibrant life now and as we get older. She specializes in runner-specific strengthening programs to help prevent injury and treat runners as they rehab from injury to prevent re-injury in the future.
Kevin is a cross country and track coach and high school teacher, who ran Division I CC and track at the University of Notre Dame. He has coached teams and individuals to the state championship almost every year, and several of his former runners have received scholarships to run in college and compete professionally. He believes in quality over quantity, allowing adequate periods of rest, and pushing hard on workout days to achieve amazing results.
Kevin is an elite local runner, with first place finishes in countless 5ks, top 3 finishes in multiple full and half marathons, and an overall first place finish in the Fort Lauderdale A1A full marathon in 2017. His recent personal best times include 2:38 for the marathon, 1:11 for the half marathon, and 15:38 for the 5k. He ran the 5k a little faster in college (14:30), but that was before other family and life responsibilities took a priority. :)
Angie likes to run, but has only recently believed that she could be faster than she used to be. With Kevin's coaching, Angie's 2019 new personal bests include the half marathon in 1:53:01, 5k best of 23:15, and 10k best of 49:46. She looks forward to continuing to get faster and stronger this year!
