Knoxville, TN , United States
I've been coaching road, trail, and ultrarunners since 2018. I joined CTS as a full-time running coach in 2021. I specialize coaching trail ultramarathons, but I also coach runners from the 5k to marathon distance. The most critical piece of my coaching practice is that I have honest and consistent communication with each of my athletes. I believe that consistent communication and following science based training principles are necessary for each athlete to reach their maximum potential.
Goals and Philosophies:
Build a trusting and supportive relationship with each athlete I coach.
Use science-based training principles that maximize the athlete’s development.
Create an individualized training plan that is updated weekly.
Make training fun, specific, and practical that fits within the athlete’s life, professional, and social demands.
Collaborate and communicate regularly to help each athlete feel confident and prepared for their event. Regular communication is critical!
Work with each athlete to identify their strengths and weaknesses and build upon those strengths and weaknesses.
Study the details of the athlete’s goal race so that we can have an ongoing conversation throughout training about what to expect in terms of terrain, elevation, weather, and race day fueling.
