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!

Sit & Kick!

This week I'm wondering about your thoughts on race tactics and what your tendency has been. When watching an elite road race like this weekend's Bolder Boulder 10K on a webcast, you’ll notice the winners are often three places (or further) back on the first lap.

Self-Leadership in Healing Trauma – Running’s Role

Running and sport involvement is one of many innovative treatments for healing trauma. Activities like music, meditation, drama, and yoga offer new pathways to recovery by stimulating the brain’s natural neuro-plasticity. Creative therapists are employing exercises that help people focus on bodily sensations— and it’s largely through heightened body awareness that past traumas can be renegotiated and revisited rather than relived repeatedly.

The Invisible Thread

One thing I love about the Bolder Boulder Citizen’s Race is that the frequent bends and turns in the course offer a perfect opportunity to employ a fun racing tactic I learned from the great Frank Shorter:"In any kind of distance race there is an invisible thread that stretches about 10 meters. If a fellow competitor is running 10 meters or less in front of you, you’ll find that you can usually pull even or spurt past them anytime you choose."

Happy Hill Running

 Approached confidently, varying the terrain on which you train actually helps you become more efficient and reduces your chances of injury by breaking up the repetition of the same motions. The more precise coordination required to accelerate down a hill or to sustain a steady rhythm up to the top of a mountain pass when combined with the corresponding changes in cadence and habitual stride patterns serve to alleviate the repetitive-stress (and aches and pains) of running the same pace mile after mile on the flats.

SPRING into Spring… with Trunk Training!

 Before the London Marathon in April, Eliud Kipchoge promised a “beautiful race.” He delivered, as he always does. What I love about Eliud (besides his magnanimous smile) is that he clearly understands the importance of trunk training: he uses almost all pelvic rhythm to quicken his leg rate, like revolutions per minute. He runs from the belly, which tapers the muscular effort in his legs and feet. It's something to see.

Live Your Dreams

In a quiet moment at this time of year, we might find ourselves dreaming about running well in an upcoming race. But the word “dreaming” has many different meanings: we could be spending our time generating a powerful vision and intention for the future, or we could just be daydreaming and fantasizing.
