Welcome to my endurance and speed training website. I’m passionate about running and I’m grateful to have the opportunity to help others start an exercise program and improve their running performance. While I played a variety of sports in my youth, I started running as an adult to improve my fitness and ease the stress in my life and stay fit. I fell in love with running and I began coaching to share my experience with others.
Through my personal experience and running coach certification courses, I learned about form, technique and running efficiency. I became an endurance coach to show others how distance running can change lives. I believe in building endurance before speed, working with my runners to safely improve performance.
My running training programs have helped thousands of athletes, especially in my hometown, where I provide training programs for the Bank of America Chicago Marathon, as well as other marathons, half marathons, ultra marathons, 5K and 10K races.
My mantra is “Good form will carry you through℠”. Good form – running efficiently – increases endurance and improves speed resulting in better running performance. And better performance through good running form enhances running ability and the enjoyment of running, both physically and psychologically.
I look forward to coaching you and helping you achieve your personal goals, whether it’s improving endurance and speed, recovering after an injury, completing an item on your “bucket list,” raising money for your favorite charity, or simply getting fit, having fun and making new friends.
