After running in high school, I continued training off/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 to abroad and started a rock band.

When I began my return to running in the fall of 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 approach is process-oriented and data-driven, revolving around the concept of planned obsolescence, not in the way that tech companies plan for you to buy a new one of their products every year, but rather the belief that eventually anyone can coach themselves, if they want.
