Coaching Philosophy

My focus is in coaching runners to be in the best possible shape for their goals. Now that could be a number of things, a personal best, a marathon on road or trail even coming back after injury. I have coached runners from couch to 50k as well as seasoned athletes. My approach is simple:
your program is personal to you
my feedback will be open and honest
my approach is holistic
