Arlington, VA , United States
I am a UESCA certified coach and have successfully helped athletes achieve a range of goals: completing a new distance (including marathons & ultras), setting PRs, running pain-free, and improving form / avoiding injury. My specialties are mountains, trails, and ultras with a particular passion for UTMB, which I've finished 3 times (28 hours, 62nd overall, 3rd American man). I also coach road runners and personally have run Boston, several sub 3-hour marathons, and 10x Marine Corps.
I have raced competitively for 15+ years in over 100 marathons and ultramarathons with numerous top 10 finishes. I am a father of 2 active boys and balance running with family and a full time job, as many of us do! I have coached athletes for over 2 years, sharing my knowledge to help others achieve their dreams.
I believe in a holistic approach that includes smart and structured training, long-term planning, mental preparation, race nutrition, day-to-day nutrition, strength, and mobility. I provide training plans that are regularly updated and adjusted to incorporate your feedback. I provide remote coaching (or in-person when possible) and engage as much as you need by e-mail and text. I believe in the benefits of long-term gains but also consult for individual or multiple sessions based on your goals and needs.
