About Me

I view myself as an explorer of limits. Those quests just happen to involve running as my transportation most of the time. Down a road or up a mountain, I have to know what it feels like to give it my all! 


Thanks to this mindset, I've been blessed to experience many different facets of the sport since I began my journey. From competing collegiately and coaching, to working at a specialty running store, and even directing a race or two. I've seen it from various perspectives, and I'd love to share my thoughts and adventures with you.


Furthermore, if you like to run, are interested in running more or at a higher level than you are now, I'd like to help! So please don't hesitate to reach out.


My Coaching Philosophy

I have been incredibly fortunate to have had several coaches with varying opinions on what was best for me and my own running at different points in my career. Some of these mentors were "conservative" while others may have been a little "brash". Nevertheless, once I began coaching athletes of my own at the college level, those vast differences in coaching styles enabled me to have a  range of knowledge to draw from when writing my own workouts for others.

I believe we run for a lot of different reasons, but one that most of us share is to test the limits of our hearts. One will get out of running only what they choose to put in. As your coach, I can help motivate you to test the limits of your own heart, in a smart and safe way. It's all about building a strong castle on stone and not sand. You can't run two miles until you've run one.

All training is personalized and specific to your unique goals and lifestyle. I will design a training program that matches your fitness level and is tailored to the distance, terrain, and conditions of the race you are targeting. Your plan will include the following:

  • Free initial coaching consult and assessment

  • Customized personal weekly training plans

  • Free training account

  • Pre-season planning & goal development

  • Pre-race strategy and discussion

  • Post-race briefing and analysis

  • Weekly feedback via FinalSurge app

  • Phone meetings by appointment
