My Mission: To help runners train smarter, chase their running dreams and reach their full running potential.
As an Albany based running coaching company, it is my mission to help people reach their full running potential. I am dedicated to helping anyone who wants to be the best runner they can be. No matter where you’re starting at or what your running goals are, I am here to help guide you every step of the way.
I believe we can change the world through running. I believe that developing excellence in one area of life carries over to the rest of your life. The tool I use to create excellence is running. Excellence in running is consistent day-to-day training, being mentally prepared and listening to your body. When you develop an excellence in running I believe you are more likely to be a better mom and dad, husband and wife, son and daughter, friend, employee or employer. I believe there will be stronger families and better communities and ultimately a better society because we understand ourselves better and thus, each other better. Because of the unique characteristics of running as you train you become a daily goal setter and goal achiever. You understand suffering and triumph. You develop a stronger mind and realize that you can achieve things that at one time you may not have believed were possible. It is my hope that through running it will help you be the best person you can be and reach your fullest potential.
Who We Are
Running Wild is for the runner who is dedicated to improving their running no matter your talent level, experience or age. My job is to help you improve to the best of your ability as a runner. We may never reach our fullest potential as athletes, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try!
What makes me different is I believe that having a coach is the best thing you can do to ensure your running success. Not all coaches are the same. It’s important to have somebody that knows how to help you reach your running goals and that can give objective feedback, lead, encourage, motivate, inspire, educate, adapt and keep you on the right track with your training.
I don’t believe in general training plans, because we are all different and require something a little different.
With 25 years of coaching experience I have coached runners of all ages, ability levels and backgrounds. I’ve coach competitive high school and college runners, beginner/new runners, runners looking to qualify for the Boston Marathon, the Olympic Trials and beyond. In addition to this, I was the 2017 USATF High Jump National Champion for 45 to 49.
