A bit about me 

I’ve coached high school, collegiate, and professional runners for more than two decades, including three USATF champions in cross country, indoor track, and road racing. I studied kinesiology and applied physiology at the University of Colorado, where I was a member of the varsity cross country team featured in Chris Lear's cult-classic Running with the Buffaloes. I earned my M.S. in Kinesiology and Applied Physiology from CU in 2000. I ran modest PRs of 3:49.5/1,500m, 8:20/3,000m, 14:20/5,000m and 30:15/10,000m.   

I’ve written two books. Consistency Is Key: 15 Ways to Unlock Your Potential as a High School Runner was published in June 2020 and has sold over 10,000 copies. Simple Marathon Training: The Right Training for Busy Adults with Hectic Lives has helped hundreds of runners toe the starting line injury-free and ready to PR.   

I‘ve written for brands such as Nike, sites like, and magazines including the much beloved but defunct Running Times. I’ve been quoted in several publications, including WiredOutside, and Runner's World 

I post videos weekly on my YouTube channel, which has over 2.5 million views. I post on InstagramTwitter, and LinkedIn each week, though I typically don’t respond to DMs. You can email me at [email protected] if you think I can be helpful. For coaching inquiries put “coaching” in the subject line and I’ll get back to you promptly.
