I believe in a balanced approach to running. Runners shouldn’t immediately be doing high mileage. I like making sure runners get the most utility out of their weeks and workouts. I believe in a measured approach to stay injury free. I love my athletes to get a good amount of racing in- not just a typical 2 marathons, 2 half marathons and that’s it. You should feel comfortable at shorter distances and know that to get faster at longer distances, you need to get faster at shorter distances.

Also, consistency is key: I may not be giving high mileage, but runners need to get out and run to be better runners. You should run 5-6 days per week.

Cross training is useful in the offseason or when injured, but you need to run to be the best runner.

Lastly, the plan should fit the runner and their work/ lifestyle. If you have late work days or trips, I will make a plan that makes sense within your life.


Current indoor and outdoor track and cross country coach for a high school (first year). I have also coached friends and family from their teens to into their 30s.


I’m fairly laid back. I go to Grateful Dead concerts and like craft beer on the side. I believe that you can train hard with good results while not totally sacrificing what other things you like outside of running. I’m a teacher and counselor.


I try to work by the Jack Daniels model. I believe in exercising a lot right up near the anaerobic threshold or doing some hard racing to really get that improvement. Also influenced by idea of making easy runs easy.


I started out as a cross country and track runner. I have run 18 marathons. Got my BQ 6 straight years. I will run Boston for the 4th time in 2024.

I have run a trail 10 miler, half marathon, 50k and 44miler. Additionally I ran a 100k stage race, and was the top American (El Cruce 2022 in Argentina)

I have enjoyed doing different things. Each race is a challenge. It is hard to have your lungs burning for 3 miles of a 5k, and it is hard to run up the side of a mountain. I love seeing what the human body can do. There’s a way to be healthy and train for and do well at multiple distances.


  • Marathon: 2:44:08 (5/07/2023) Long Island Marathon, 3rd overall
  • Half Marathon: 01:17:42 (10/08/2023)
