While running is simple, reaching your fullest potential can be complicated.

Running seems to be a simple act; literally one foot in front of the other. However, realizing your fullest potential can be a difficult, sometimes frustrating process. Whether preparing to run your first local 5K race or trying to run a personal best in your 10th marathon, interactive, guidance from an experienced running coach can give you the best chance for success. Serious physical effort and time must be invested into preparing for a running event; and an experienced running coach will act as a guide to help insure that your time is not wasted.

I am privileged to coach runners of all ages, abilities and lifestyles. It's my very strong belief that an athlete's lifestyle, career, nutrition and psychology must be considered while formulating a training regime. As a client, we will work together, communicating as often as needed to insure that you are progressing toward your goals.

Some great reasons to use for your training program.

1. Do you need guidance in the areas of exercise physiology, nutrition and racing strategy?

2. Are you prone to injuries and overtraining? Many runners, regardless of ability or aspirations need an expert to "hold" them back.

3. Do you believe that you will benefit from a disciplined, pragmatic approach to planning your running goals?

4. Are you new to running or planning to run your first marathon?
