I have only been working with Andrew for a couple of months. So far, I am totally impressed! I used to run many years ago but in recent years have been riddled with knee pain. My running in the last few years has been in fits and starts, always ending with me quitting because my knees just wouldn’t cooperate. I’ve pursued other forms of exercise, but always wanted to return to running. I turned 51 this year and it is my goal to be able to run pain free for the next 10 years of my life (for starters). Andrew has created a plan for me that slowly builds cardio endurance combined with weight work-outs that feel great and build strength. I am slowly reintroducing running into my life and have no knee pain! Ever! It’s a revelation. I love the weekly plan, Andrew is super responsive, and I am making progress without trashing my body. I am so appreciative of his expertise and communication.

I have just moved to Seattle 3-4 months ago. About the similar moment, I decided to choose Andrew of TeamRunRun as my coach to work with, and hope he can help me to achieve another BQ.
After 3 month, I learned a lot from Andrew.
Every Sunday, I am looking forward to seeing what the program in coming week will look like. Andrew’s program, including running and strength training, is always fun and interesting. Running program includes walking, upstair walking, walking with heavy-loaded backpack. No need to mention different kind of intervals.
Within 3 months.Strength training he designed always helped me to be fitter and stronger.
To me, more important is Andrew’s program is so enjoyable. That makes training not so boring at all. Needless to say, Andrew’s program is scientific and efficient.
Communication with Andrew is great. He responds quick. His comments are encouraging, professional and very detailed.
Andrew is always supportive and friendly. He understands well about running and training. He knows there are ups and downs in training. He always asks my feelings and condition and then designs the program fitting well to me, both physically and mentally. Andrew really cares about his runners.
I should say, now, Andrew is not only my coach, and also my friend who I can trust and rely on.

I’ve been training with Andrew for my first 50 mile race, and the experience has been awesome so far. Andrew is great at communicating, and gives me really consistent and helpful feedback on my runs. He’s also been great at helping me balance my running with other activities (CrossFit and skiing), and also with helping make my training fit into everything else I have going on in a week. I also really appreciate his communication and feedback; I love having the accountability of knowing that Andrew will check in on my runs, and his feedback has been really helpful for knowing how to prioritize runs and effort levels. Overall, I feel really lucky to be working with Andrew, and am really grateful for his guidance!

Andrew is great! We’ve only been training for 2 months together for my first half and he’s already helped improve my PFS and I can now run almost 6 miles pain free. He’s so knowledgeable and I love the workouts he programs. He really tries to get to know his runners and figure out what works best for them. Highly recommend Andrew!!

I have been working with Andrew since February (2021). I chose to work with Andrew because his profile talked about the mental aspect of running and how he can help develop and strengthen this area. This area is challenging for me. As I trained for my race, I saw HUGE improvements in my running. I also gained perspective on running and my approach towards my running. Andrew really helped me with the mental aspect. I had originally planned to train with Andrew until I finished my race but I’ve enjoyed working with him so much, I plan to continue training for future races. His training, coaching, and his incredible positive approach to running has been the best! I highly recommend Andrew. He’s an all around great coach!!

I feel SO lucky to be working with Andrew! I joined TRR when I was injured, just diagnosed with RED-S, off a super major DNF. Andrew has been amazing at getting me back into a consistent running regime. I feel like the timing is perfect and I am noticing tangible improvements. He got straight to the heart of what my weaknesses are as a runner (and what my strengths are too!) and for the first time in my running life I feel confident about my training! His communication is top notch, he is funny, endlessly motivating. I have had a lifelong aversion to strength training and have found his guidance here very helpful. A few months ago I felt resigned to never being strong enough to hit my goals confidently, and Andrew has turned that around. If you want to become a resilient well rounded runner at the top of your game…Andrew is the coach for you! His endless positivity and belief has really changed my running for the better.

I’m a regular person, not a super-athlete. The fact that I have stuck to an (aggressive!) exercise regimen for this long astonishes me and it is 100% because of Andrew. He is so great. SO GREAT. Honestly, it’s just too much to write it all out. Here are the highlights:
-He got me in the best shape of my life.
-I am running farther than I ever thought imaginable.
-He trained me carefully and compassionately after the birth of my first child, through my second pregnancy, and after the birth of my second child.
-There is something about him that is just endlessly motivating.
-He convinced me to believe in myself (most of the time, at least). This might be his biggest feat.
I am so lucky to have been paired up with him. I cannot imagine a better coach.
Choosing Andrew as my running coach has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made (seriously).
He’s not only helped A TON with my endurance, but he’s been incredibly influential in my mental game and strategy. Thanks to Andrew I’ve achieved much more than my initial goal of completing an ultra:
Running an FKT! Finishing my first 50k and smiling the WHOLE way. Running most days of the week without injuries. Being on Strava leaderboard. LOVING running even on the hard days. LOVING running even on the slow days. LOVING, or at least TOLERATING the last uphills on a long run. and much more… Thanks Andrew for helping me keep doing and enjoying the activity I cherish most.

Where to start!
I never really thought of myself as someone that would like to go to the gym, run, or have a trainer – I only started working with Andrew because when I joined the gym I go to, I thought it would be good to get started and familiarize myself a bit with it. I initially signed up for three training sessions, that was almost 5 years ago! I’ve worked with Andrew ever since.
The facts: Andrew has trained people for years. He’s run marathons, ultra-marathons – he knows how to set a goal, work towards it, and achieve it; he knows how to help you do the same. It doesn’t matter what level you are starting at. I went from not being able to run a mile – to having run 10k’s. I am stronger than I have ever been, physically and mentally.
What sets Andrew apart is well, unique to him! He lives the life he coaches you toward, leading by example. From day one, working with him I felt like I belonged at the gym, or running on the trails – even when I had no clue as to what I was doing. He helped me find the joy of movement, of using my body, and even sweating. (I used to hate sweating!). The workouts are important, but equally or even more so are the tools Andrew helped me cultivate and find within myself to be motivated and to keep challenging myself.

Andrew has been my coach for several years now. Rather than bore you with the details I just want to provide a “proof is in the pudding”: At age 69 my goals and training is not the simple days of just do it and bounce back. Andrew has really worked to personalize my training to very specific goals. At age 67 I survived and finished the Cascade Crest 100 in 90+ heat, forest fire smoke and added miles/elevation. Andrew did a heck of a job getting me trained up and through these trying conditions. Now my goal is an anti-aging program of not losing the inevitable muscle mass, losing VO2 Max capacity…and I can report the metrics are going well.
Andrew has been great and helped me achieve my goal of training to run a trail half marathon. I had no background in running and had never run further than 3 miles when I came up with the idea. He put together a weekly plan that I stuck to and it worked! I am very stoked. I came across a few minor injuries along the way which he was knowledgable about and helped me continue training without making things worse. I highly recommend Andrew to anyone out there.
