It starts with a goal. Every goal needs to be deconstructed to identify the steps necessary to achieve the desired level of success. Whether it is being a more active individual, exploring new places, or pursuing performance goals there are two critical elements that I use to gauge success. The first is quantifiable improvement. This can be the transition from a sedentary state to a more active lifestyle, developing measurable improvement over past race performances, or exploring new race distances and environments. The second key factor is joy. Running has taught me how to connect with the natural world and to be fully immersed in a moment. It is in these moments I have found happiness and it plays a critical role in my running.
Every athlete will begin with an assessment via phone/Skype call and questionnaire. This will be used to obtain running background, injury history, current goals, and gain a clear understanding of your unique life circumstances. The more I can learn in this phase the better equipped I will be to tailor a plan to you.
Coaching fee includes unlimited feedback or questions you have along the way through email, phone calls, texts, etc. This can range from what a given workout’s purpose is to strength training suggestions for runners to training and race day nutrition strategies.

Customized Training Plan
Once we have completed the athlete assessment I will then develop a tailored training plan based on the information I gather for your given event. This plan will be re-evaluated on a weekly, and if needed, daily basis based on feedback. Factors that play a role in plan adaptation are: your response to the training and life outside of running.
