I have a been a runner since just about the time I could walk. My dad was an NCAA Div. I track and cross country coach (and a pretty darn good one), so I grew up around some of the best runners and coaches in the world. I’ve always been a student of running – I’m always reading and researching training plans and coaching methods. I even remember taking the final exam for my dad’s university-level Track & Field course when I was about 10 years old!
But, now I want to take that knowledge to the next level and get my running coach certification. I am going to help our tour guests achieve their goals, and then I want to celebrate their success with them on our running tours to Europe!
I’m currently studying the legendary coach Jack Daniels, learning about “Critical Velocity Training” from Tom “Tinman” Schwartz, and absorbing everything I can about running from books and videos, old and new.
I’ll be documenting what I’ve learned here on the blog so you can take advantage of it and improve your running.
