These are compliments to your training that we will also talk about often:

  4. Communication: You’re the only one who can advocate what you’re feeling, your input is key to effective training.


My college coach told me that a good coach teaches you how to coach yourself. I believe that to be true and because of it I include the following in your package:

  • Response times to questions within 24 hours
  • Detailed training descriptions and the reasoning behind their use
  • Strength, mobility, stability, and drills descriptions for warmups and conditioning

During a typical training block there will be four main phases:

  • Base (focused on narrowing the gap between fast speed and slower paces and building mileage)
  • Build (focused on transitioning into specific race pace work while maintaining mileage)
  • Specific (focused on specific race pace and the largest volume weeks)
  • Taper (focused on reducing volume while maintaining intensity to prepare you for race day)

During each of these phases there will nearly always be Vo2max work, threshold work, moderate aerobic and low aerobic work. I believe it is essential to get the ceiling as high as possible for each so that you can perform your best on race day.


  • Coached athletes to PR’s for multiple distances from 5k-24 hour
  • Self coached myself to 159.16mi in 24 hours and 12:54 for 100 miles.


I began running primarily in college and started being competitive in ultramarathons after college. I have learned from various coaches and have been a student of the sport, allowing me to coach myself to multiple top performances. I have also been coached by Brad Hudson, an elite coach. He helped grow my running knowledge base. I enjoy reading about principles about running ad learning everything I can. I enjoy getting to know people and what makes each person excited to train harder and better, one of the many reasons I love coaching!


I have many influences and I draw from nearly all of them. Some of my main influencers are Renato Canova, Brad Hudson, Steve Magness, Zach Bitter, and Jason Koop.

    I’m thoroughly impressed with Jacob after working with him for the last 4 months. I am not a novice runner by any means, but wanted a new perspective and accountability for an upcoming marathon. Jacob delivered both in spades and the result was a 22 minute PR to my marathon time and even beat my goal time by 2.5 minutes. The program wasn’t without challenges, including both contracting COVID and a muscle strain, Jacob helped navigate me through both and had me on the starting line feeling as good as possible. He was attentive to my feedback and communicated frequently. I would highly reccomend hiring Jacob as a coach if you are looking to PR your next race and take your running knowledge to the next level.

    Very positive running coach, also encouraging but also willing to make last minute changes based off of feels and where you’re at. Will answer any questions i have within an hour and always willing to explain in detail the reasoning behind what he is doing. Great at communication. Really enjoy working with Jacob

    It has been awesome working with Jacob! I’m an experienced ultra runner but was looking for an outside perspective into my training that would allow me to reach my goals. Jacob has added variability into my training that I was lacking. Each work out has a purpose, even recovery. He always responds when I reach out and is flexible when I need him to be. I highly recommend Jacob!
