I’m lucky enough to live about a mile from Adam, so I get the opportunity to run and chat with him frequently. Adam is an amazing and supportive coach. He listens very well and does a great job of balancing encouragement and pushing me to get the most out of my running. He is great at pivoting when needed, due to injury or life changes. I really like that he can get super technical about things, or (more often for me) dumb it down a bit so I understand. I’m looking forward to what the future holds for Adam, as a coach and athlete.

I had not run in 6 years due to a chronic hamstring injury that would flare up each time I attempted to start up running again on my own-definitely due to improper progression. With Adam’s guidance and realistic/ safe training plan I was able to safely build on his weekly plans and after 8 weeks I ran 60 minutes consecutively and covered nearly 7 miles in that time! I am happy with the results I’ve experienced so far with Adam. He’s contributed as an accountability measure as well as a subject matter expert. Highly recommend him as a coach.

Can’t say enough about Adam the coach and more importantly, Adam the person.
I was connected to Adam through his lovely wife, Ladia, and it couldn’t have come at a better time in my running life. I was in a state of flux trying to decide where to go with my running as a cancer surviving liver transplant recipient. I had just completed running the 2020 LA Marathon just 6 months after my liver transplant and really wanted to pursue some renewed goals and explore different facets of running, specifically getting into trail running and ultra marathoning.
Through Ladia, I was able to have a conversation with Adam and we spoke at great lengths about my own personal goals and the desire to transition to the trails yet maintain my goals on the road. Adam patiently took all the details of that conversation and constructed a training plan that introduced me to trail running while still prescribing solid road workouts.
Through our bi-weekly check-ins via FaceTime, we were able to collaborate on my progress and recalibrate the training plan according not only based on the Strava data, but on how I was feeling mentally. Before I know it, I was doing close to 20 miles of trail running per week and at the same time getting faster than I was prior to my liver transplant.
On August 13, only 11 months after my liver transplant, I ran a 5K time trial and beat my PR by 1 second. I couldn’t have done this without the guidance of Adam. He masterfully balanced my training by maintaining a good balance of easy to moderate efforts along with a solid injection of speed and tempo workouts. Without even realizing it, I was getting faster and stronger.
I look forward to continuing on with Adam as we move forward with our pursuit of race goals when they finally happen again. With his help, I was also able to transform my apprehension and uncertainty of trail running into joy and excitement of getting dirty in the mountains. I’m already scoping out 50 milers for my first trail race!
I’ve been so grateful for these past 3 months with Adam and looking forward to many more.

Adam is the best. Extremely genuine, passionate, and responsive. He’s the ultimate runner’s coach and just wants to help you meet your goals. When I started with Adam I had a foot injury and he provided considerable support to help me get back on my feet. Thanks, Adam!

Adam has been excellent!! He was one of my coaches when I ran at Luther College and it has been so sweet to reconnect with him over this platform! I had seen him talking about coaching via Team Run Run on his instagram and reached out to him. He’s been so supportive and knowledgeable and has always provided timely and informed feedback. It’s been sweet to have history with him as my coach and to continue this relationship in a totally different season of life. I had to take some time off of running after college, so it’s been sweet to have his support and direction as I try to rebuild my base and determine what goals I want to pursue. If you’re looking for a coach who is kind, compassionate, knowledgeable, and supportive, Adam is amazing!

I have really enjoyed working with Adam! He is very responsive and thorough, and yet more than flexible with my goals, time available for training, and scheduling runs based off of my weekly obligations. I started training under Adam after an injury and successfully got back into the groove of running and shortly after ran my fastest 10K to date! Looking forward to continued progress and building my mileage with his help. Can’t recommend enough the help and support he has provided.
