Run Your Best

Though many successful runners have achieved greatness in the sport via self-coaching systems, almost all of us could benefit from the guidance, support, and “second brain” benefits that derive from outside resources. That’s what I hope to achieve through my running coach programs.

Whether you are a first-time marathon or half-marathon athlete, someone looking to get back into running after a prolonged break due to injury or “life”, or a seasoned racer hoping to bridge to your ultimate potential, engaging with a running coach can help hone your physical and mental fitness and help you stay on target to reach your running goals.

I have a variety of programs, systems, and levels of engagement with which I can help you on your journey to running prowess. I am also happy to work with you to craft a program tailored to your individual level of fitness, time constraints, and desired targets and help get you there through my time-tested processes and running systems.

Let’s work together to help you become the best runner you can be!

Crafting Meaningful Running Resolutions

“How Long?… Not Long!”

Neuroscience has shown that the repetitive motions and complex cognitive functions of running can trigger neurotransmitters, chemicals that boost the brain’s connectivity, thought patterns and decision-making—human qualities that are often compromised by the stress of life, especially in these troubled political times. Meanwhile, spiritual traditions remind us that turning our attention outward, from self-concern to the welfare of others, is the key to peace, love, and sanity.

Japan has one of the most extraordinary running cultures on the planet, unlike anything I’ve ever come across.
