PHILOSOPHY

Safety building volume, developing speed and endurance, and focusing on consistency over time. Goals are to increase total volume, develop with strong aerobic running, then hone in on the goal race distance.

COACHING EXPERIENCE

Self-coached for 9 years where I have experimented with different training methods.

ABOUT ME

I am a former Division III Cross Country/Track & Field athlete who has maintained a love of the sport. I still compete personally and religiously follow the sport at the collegiate and professional level. I was born with a club left foot which may have limited my running potential, but not my love of the sport. I also love going to sporting events and concerts. I am an attorney in my day job.

BIG INFLUENCES

I incorporate training elements used by elite athletes and top college programs, and tweak them based on each athlete’s strengths and weaknesses.

RACING HISTORY

My most significant races were during a period after graduating from college where I was training full time while trying to figure out what I was going to do with my life. I was living in the Charlotte, NC area and was basically living like a professional runner, and that Thanksgiving managed a huge personal best of 27:30 in the 8k, which was over 100 seconds faster than I had ever run in college. Later that winter I ran a 58:37 10 mile race which was also faster than I had run for half the distance in college. Those races were very rewarding as they solidified my belief in myself and my training.
