After competing at high levels in both cross country and track in high school and then in college, Rob spent a number of years away from running. It was his return to racing with the completion of the 2007 Chicago Marathon when he re-discovered his appreciation for the sport. Since then, Rob has been able to channel this passion into a number of successes in road racing, most notably Maine Runner of the Year in 2013 and 2017, two top-40 finishes at the Boston Marathon and a total of eight marathons in under 2:25.

​In addition to individual successes, Rob has been able to contribute to the Maine running community in various ways. In particular, he has held positions as vice president and president of the board between 2011 and 2014 for Dirigo RC, Maine’s premier road racing club. He is also currently a member of the TD Beach to Beacon Road Race Board of Directors (since 2020), Maine’s largest and most prestigious road race.

My most memorable racing experience is from the 2017 Beach to Beacon 10k Road Race in Cape Elizabeth, Maine. Going into the last few hundred meters of the race I was running in second position for all Maine runners on the day and noticed the person running first, Jesse Orach, had fallen on the course. With nothing more than a few seconds to make a decision, I picked Jesse up and guided him to the finish line, ensuring his bib number would cross the finish line mat before mine did so he would be able to finish first in the Maine standings. At the time I didn’t think much of it, but the act quickly garnered a large amount of attention both in news outlets and online and provided me with my “15 minutes of fame”. Jesse and I are now friends and I’m able to use that day as example to both myself and to others that finishing first isn’t always what matters most.

    If your serious about crushing your goals or ready to take up running, have fun and learn from one of Maine’s best, Rob is your Coach! Rob helped me for the last 2 years focus on my goals big and small, leading me to personal bests in the 10k and Marathon after 10 years since my last personal best.

    Rob is the best! I have been working with him since 2019 and in that time he has helped me achieve personal bests at 5k, 10k and 15k. He has supported me through injury recoveries and has provided motivation when I most needed it. He is reliable and quick to respond and his training plans provide the flexibility and adaptability that I frequently need with two school age children and a full time job. I would highly recommend Rob to anyone!

    Rob has changed my focus of running and is helping me take my passion for running to a whole new level. I’ve completed two half marathons and I’m looking forward to completing my first full marathon this fall with his support and guidance.
