After running in high school, I continued training off and on into my late 20s, while coaching cross country and track at the middle school and high school levels. Eventually I gave up running in 2014 do to recurring injuries and submitted to a huge lifestyle change. I moved abroad and started a rock band.

When I began my return to running in 2019, it was a slog. It felt much different from my previous comebacks. Not only was I out of shape, but I was getting old. In the following 2 years I learned more about running and the body then in all the previous years of running combined.

My philosophy is health over speed, with the understanding that consistency is what ultimately produces sustainable speed. We all want to run fast, but we don't have to sacrifice our health and the joy of running in the process. My approach is process-oriented and data-driven, believing that eventually, once they learn the basics and know their body, anyone can coach themselves to a lifelong joy of running.
