I really appreciate you taking the time to read and take a look around at what my new website is all about.
After competing as a professional runner for more than 20 years I’ve decided to share with you all the knowledge and experience that I have accrued by becoming a Running & Health Coach. It is my goal to help you understand what works and what doesn’t, what shortcuts you can take and what areas need a long term approach and finally what you need to do to make you feel healthier on a daily basis.
My running experience includes representing the United States in 3 different Olympic Games, 11 different World Championship teams and countless other road and track races over the years. I have raced around the globe on the indoor track, outdoor track, cross country and the roads - from the mile all the way up to the marathon. It’s probably safe to say that if there is a major race out there I have ran in it.
My three keys to longevity in this sport have been balance, adaptability and paying attention to the little things. I have found that having the ability to stay calm and focused when amongst the chaos is paramount both in sport and life. I’m excited to draw on my experiences to help you achieve all of your running and lifestyle goals!
In the later stages of my career I took a big interest in nutrition, both as it relates to sport performance and managing the aging process. I have found that what I have been doing with my nutrition over the last decade has been as important if not more than what I have been doing out on the track. Over the years I have been fortunate to spend time with some of the greatest minds in sports nutrition. They have all helped to shape the way I think and how I approach this aspect of my health. Not a day goes by now without me reading up on the latest research or checking in with my fellow colleagues on what works and what doesn’t. This winter as part of continuing my education I became a certified Primal Health Coach. I believe an important quality in a coach is to be constantly seeking new information and being open to learning new ways to do things. I’ll be sharing with you what I’m really excited about in regard to running, flexibility work, strengthening and nutrition!
