About Collin

With 15 years of running experience, from 5k to 50 miles, this sport has added such value and purpose to my world.

In college at BGSU, I founded a running club focused on getting non-runners introduced to the sport of running–focused on camaraderie, self improvement, and the hardest part: getting started.

When moving to Florida, I was introduced to a running group, the “Speedsters” that took me to the next level love for the sport.

This fire has enhanced my life in multiple ways, physically, mentally, spiritually. My hope, is to light this fire in the lives of beginning runners.

Coaching Philosophy

Enjoy the run; run happy; run fulfilled.

My coaching philosophy focuses on the fact that running is a life sport. The goal is to stay healthy, stay inspired, and light this fire that burns through every stage of your life.

I am not the coach who prepares you for the Olympics. I am the coach to prepare you for what lights your fire; who helps you look forward to when the morning alarm goes off; to remind you that your parents, children, and friends are all inspired by you.

Specialization: travel-race planning. Supporting the logistics and excitement of races with a destination, or on the road.
