My running story started in 2017 just before my 48th birthday. I realized I wasn’t getting any younger and if I was ever going to run that bucket list marathon, I needed to get off the couch. I had not run more than a mile in years…but I was determined to make a positive life change. I set short and long term goals and developed a passion for running in the process.

My desire to share my love for running and inspire others led me down the coaching path.


The biggest influence is the satisfaction of seeing progress! When I was a new runner, I thought running a marathon was so far out of reach. Consistency, hard work and a strong program moves you closer to your goals every day!


What started out as a bucket list marathon has turned into a huge part of my life. I never thought I could get close to qualifying for the Boston Marathon (and I’m not there yet)…but I’m close. I realized you can continue to get stronger and faster with consistency and hard work.

    I cannot say much about Jaysen that is different than the two reviews above. I can only add that in addition to being a fantastic running coach who really does understand me, my goals, how to get me there, and has been there/done that himself, I consider him a great friend. I truly look forward to my runs, sharing updates with him, and never would have thought I could have ‘run’ so far given my long term life experiences. If you are really considering having a running coach, you will not find a better one.

    Jaysen has been the most supportive and creative coach! I am training to run in Disney World next month and Jaysen has provided me with a plan that will actually get me to run 19.3 miles over two days! Not only did he create a physical plan for me to conquer these miles, he also had me mentally preparing and thinking about my “why”.

    What sets Jaysen apart from anyone else is how much he cares. After every run, I get a text asking how I feel and how it went. He analyzes my heart rate and encourages me to slow down. I am so fortunate to have him prepping me for such a milestone race.

    I am recovering from breast cancer and Jaysen is mindful of that when he set up my training and has assured me that it’s okay to be flexible and change a day or work within how my body feels. I never thought my body would run this many miles after having a double mastectomy. With Jaysen’s thoughtful planning and his constant care and coaching, I am going to finish the race!

    I highly recommend Jaysen to anyone in any stage of their running journey! Thank you for EVERYTHING, Jaysen!

    I am beyond grateful for the incredible journey I’ve had under the guidance of my marathon running coach. His personal journey to being a marathon runner himself is truly inspirational, and it’s clear that he brings that same dedication and passion into his coaching.

    From helping me conquer my first half marathon (DPR 2023) as part of Vernon Hills park district runnning program, to now preparing me for a full marathon, his expertise has been invaluable. He will create a customized training calendar which is geared to each athlete’s unique needs and goals. and will follow through personally about every traning sesison output and adjust the program if needed.

    What sets him apart is not just his knowledge but also his approachability. He is always willing to answer questions, provide guidance, and offer support, whether it be about diet, warmup, stretching, etc.. This has created a training environment that is not only challenging but very positive.

    I feel fortunate to have such a dedicated and inspiring coach by my side as I work towards my marathon goals. If you’re looking for a coach who not only knows the ins and outs of marathon training but also genuinely cares about your journey, look no further.

    Thank you Jasen, for being an outstanding mentor and making my running experience so rewarding!
