I completed my first marathon in Honolulu in 1990. This first marathon sparked over two decades of running including 37 marathons and 16 ultramarathons, including 2 Leadville 100 Trail Races. Based on my experience, I decided to start coaching. This was a natural progression for me, as my passion and excitement for running are evident to everyone I meet.

Currently I coach private clients with a highly customized and hands-on approach. This approach ensures that each program I create is as unique as the individual.

I believe that a good coach takes more than training into account when achieving goals. I am a strong believer in the mental and nutritional aspects that accompany top performance.

We’ll work as a team to make your running easier and more fun, and then I’ll assist you in evaluating and adjusting a running program along the way.
