In middle school, I ran a mile for the first time. I knew nothing about pacing, and my mediocre efforts put me over the line in 9:50s. My Mom bet me $20 if I could break 9:00. The next time I ran, it was in 7:52.

I jogged a few times in high school, but I certainly wouldn’t call it training. I didn’t catch the running bug until my freshman year of college when I did my first marathon, without much training, and with 50lbs ruck. Somehow, I was hooked

After college, I got serious, hitting hard workouts and better times, and I brought my marathon down to 2:55. I dabbled in a few triathlons as my wife Nicole blossomed in multisport. My passion lies in the run, but I learned enough from my research into triathlon enabled me to start coaching Nicole for her first Ironman and as she began competitively racing shorter distances.

I don’t do anything halfway, so I poured myself into research, coaching, and training. Along the way, I picked up several other athletes. Here are several of my athletes’ achievements:

  • Sprint Distance ITU Age Group World Championship Qualifier
  • Olympic Distance Age Group National Championship Qualifier
  • 70.3 World Championship Qualifier
  • And I brought my marathon down to a 2:35 for a 14th place finish at the 2018 Marine Corps Marathon

I want to share my coaching, experiences, and research. I’m exceptionally passionate about what I do, and nothing brings me joy like helping athletes get faster and achieve their goals.
