He also brings 20 years of personal running experience including high school and collegiate track, and USATF cross country racing, and a brief foray into the world of triathlons to his coaching.

He enjoys helping runners reach their true potential across all distances from 5Ks to marathons, and believes that running faster can be just as fulfilling as running farther.
