About Me

I'm a 47 year old runner living in the Sacramento area and have been running for 10 years (only ran before then when the military ordered me to). I worked my ass off trying to qualify for the 2012 US Olympic Marathon Trials and finally achieved this goal at the Chicago Marathon on 10-10-10. This blog began with a focus on the training and adventures that led to my 2:45 marathon. But, I'm not stopping there. I am shooting for another Olympic Trials Qualifier for 2016. You can join me here in my big adventure!  

I also offer coaching services to athletes interested in exploring their running potential and committed to putting in the work to get stronger and faster. I coach runners of all levels and abilities training for events from the 5k to the marathon. Whether your goal is to complete a 5k or run a sub-three hour marathon, I will encourage you to dream big and provide the tools to help you achieve your goals. Contact me and let’s get started!
