I am a marathon runner and dietitian, and I have a passion for stretching my endurance capabilities and helping others. I am very excited to be working with KR Endurance! My coaching philosophy closely mirrors the Lydiard system of training. This type of training starts by building a solid foundation then applying event specific conditioning.
I believe that consistent training + nutrition (fuel and recover) + rest + enjoyment and fun = steady improvement and long term success. Whether you are a seasoned marathon runner and want to qualify for Boston, or you are a new athlete looking to complete your first 5k, I am confident I can provide the training and nutritional principals to help you reach your goals.

My ultimate running goal is to break 2.45 in the marathon and qualify for the USA Olympic Trials. In my free time I enjoy running, watching the NFL, spending time with my wife, hiking with my dog, and watching my 5 silly chickens frolic in the yard.

My love for coaching comes from many years of teaching and leading fitness programs with Soldiers in the military and helping them accomplish their professional and personal fitness goals.
