My work with runners looking to build a healthy lifestyle, learn the fundamentals of running, or runners really ready to get a PR, BQ or perform at their top level. I offer lots of advice and tips for getting thru your 5K to 100 mile races.


Hard work, consistency and determination equal success in running. Building on these qualities to get runners to perform their best. You do not need to be running 100 miles or qualifying for Boston… Just being your best, having fun, being smart, and loving your runs!


The last 3 years have been with TRR getting runners to goals like; Boston Marathon Qualifying times, 6 hour runs, 1 to 5K PR’s. Started coaching friend and runners after college with individual training plans, helping plan race day nutrition along with hydration strategies. Recovery and injury prevention are my top priorities with my runners. Running strong and injury-free over quantity of runs. Learn to love this amazing sport one run at a time.


Cross country lit my fire for running. The feeling of being out there mixing it up, darting through the woods to the final push sprinting down the pavement. Over the years I’ve grown as a runner and experienced all types of races. I started off with road 5k’s and then jumped up to half and full marathons. The training portion is what I love; the process you go through mentally and physically. This was what brought me to my true love (after my wife of course!): the trails and ultra running. I feel they compliment each other well and with over 25 years of experience at distances ranging from 5k to 100k, road and trail races and lots of elevation gain, I look forward to helping people get the results they are looking for. As a certified coach and trainer, I hope to help runners gain the performance and speed they desire while building up strength and endurance through running and weights.

    Jeff is a fantastic coach. I wouldn’t have gotten as far as I did without him. Before i started working with Jeff I would barely accomplish 2 miles and it was hard. After a couple days of running i would eventually strain or tweak something causing me to go back to the drawing board. Once I started training with Jeff, he taught me the basics of running and guided me through when I hit road blocks. Fast forward, i am running half marathons with ease. In between races, my training of 5-10 miles i run with ease as well. I learned how to pace myself, run at lengths, and listen to my bodies needs. My first time hiring a run coach, definitely opened my eyes to online coaches.

    Jeff was the first Running Coach I’ve ever hired, and I had a great experience! I sought out a coach to help me prepare for a Half Marathon, and I wanted to prepare better than I had in the past. Jeff definitely helped me accomplish this. I knew from the outset I would be hampered by a couple of injuries, and Jeff coached me through my injuries, while still maintaining an effective training program. He holds periodic phone call meetings which are timed perfectly, but is always available via text for questions, comments and feedback. All aspects of his training program are great, from mobility and strength training to running drills and pacing goals. When I heal up, and if I set another running goal for myself, I will be knocking on Jeff’s door again for sure!

    Coach Jeffrey was the first coach I have used for running and training, he is great to work with! I have recently found a love for endurance running and Coach Jeffrey has the experience to keep me on target in order to accomplish my goals!!

    Jeffrey has been awesome to work with. His training program really helped me achieve my long time goal of a sub 2 half. Having the right training is crucial and I needed someone with the knowledge to guide me. Not every run is going to be great but the training helps you have the tools to keep going and do better the next run. He is responsive, understanding and honest. I highly recommend him!

    Jeffrey was the first coach I ever used. I am weight lifter type that wanted to improve my running. He was very approachable and his training program really helped me improve my running. I was skeptical at first but I improved my times with his training plan. There were times I dreaded the training plan because I knew it would be a hard day but that’s what a coach is for. He pushed me beyond my limits. I will use Jeff again in the future if I am preparing for an event.

    Coach Jeffrey is FANTASTIC! Prior to working with him I was running on my own, picking and choosing workouts. I was running a solid 10:30 minute mile (up to 13.1 miles). When I decided to pursue the goal of a full marathon I realized it was time to try working with a coach – mainly to try and avoid injury and to stay motivated. Fast forward 2 months: I am LOVING running. Jeffrey’s workouts are fun, varied, and do-able. Previously I skipped intervals because I didn’t like them – now I look forward to them! My mile pace times are now 9:00-9:30 for long runs (obviously I’m not a pro, just a mid/late-40s woman trying to get a little faster and stronger)!! I remain injury free and can’t wait to see what I can do by the time my marathon rolls around in a couple more months. Jeffrey is very responsive to emails, questions, and helps tailor my training program around my crazy work schedule.

    So far Jeffrey has helped me stay consistent by building me a weekly running plan that has allowed me to gradually increase my speed and distance without risk of injury. It’s been a little over 2 months so far and I am more confident in my running than I’ve ever been before. I haven’t suffered a single injury and he’s given me great feedback. I was a little skeptical at first of starting an online coaching program but I see now that I’ve made the right choice. If you’re thinking about signing on with Jeffrey, do it. You won’t be disappointed.

    I’ve only been training with Jeffrey for two months, but he’s already helped me back from a bad hamstring. He knows how to formulate a plan that keeps you interested, challenged, and fully vested in your progress. Jeffrey mixes things up and the workouts are a blast. He’s also very personable and a great communicator. I would recommend him over any coach I’ve used in my35 years of running and racing

    Jeffrey has been an excellent coach! His scheduled training motivates me to get out there and get it done. He somehow makes things accessible while pushing me. I’m looking forward to my upcoming months with him.

    Jeffrey has been a phenomenal coach as I train for the NYC Marathon. He is very knowledgeable and is careful to cater your training to your needs and abilities. He is also very reliable and respond to emails within a day. I highly recommend working with him!
