About John

I have been a runner for over 35 years. I have completed both the New York and Marine Corps Marathon. I have also completed numerous Half Marathons as well 10 mile races, 10k, and 5k races. I am a retired federal law enforcement officer who has maintained a high level of fitness over a nearly 25 career. I can assist military and law enforcement candidates prepare for physical fitness examinations in the northern Virginia and DC metro area.

Coaching Philosophy

If an athlete would like to train in-person and is concerned about the complexity of workout, I would assist the runner in active stretching and then provide guidance to assist the athlete in a tempo, threshold, or long run workout. Immediate feedback after the athlete completes the workout will be provided. The focus on in-person workouts will be to monitor pace, biomechanics and proper running form. Training plans created for the runner need to be a living document where both coach and athlete provide feedback on the plan and can be adaptable to changing the plan.
Online plans created will be adjusted as needed on a weekly basis. Available to discuss pre-race strategy and pacing as well as feedback on performance. Recommend a GPS sports watch and chest heart monitor for all athletes.
