RRCA Certified Coach Biographies:

Brendan Ward: Brendan is an experienced RRCA certified running coach who is familiar with coaching individuals and groups of all levels and experiences, from new runners to former collegiate athletes and record holders in everything from the 1500m at the track to the marathon. 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.

A true lover of the sport with the philosophy that everyone should be able to get out and move most days of the week, Brendan spends free time reading or writing about running, with particular interest on the science and philosophies of training. His favorite training books are The Science of Running by Steve Magness, Run Faster by Brad Hudson, Brain Training for Runners by Matt Fitzgerald, and Running to the Top by Arthur Lydiard.

He regularly hosts good form running clinics at Fleet Feet, where he addresses common running-gait deviations that slow you down, increase your effort, and increase your injury risk. An advocate of running and training smarter, not necessarily harder, Brendan enjoys helping runners train effectively to hit that new PR, or qualifying time, while providing you with the tools to be a fitter, faster, more effective runner. 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. Whether you are in a running slump, looking to conquer a new distance, or wondering what comes next in your running after completing a training program, Brendan will create and help you implement a plan to meet your needs.
