I'm an endurance coach, specializing in Xterra, off-raod triathlon. I have coached Ironman racers, and led 5 to PR's. I also coach marathon runners and have led 3 runners to the ultimate, qualification for Boston. I've had great success helping mom or dad with designing their training schedules, around a crazy home life. Kids, jobs, spouses and more, are most important, and designing a program that keeps their priorities in line brings great satisfaction to me as coach. So let me help you.
