I am a runner, marathoner and RRCA certified running coach. I work with newer runners and first-time marathoners.

I write about running, training, overcoming self-doubt, and pushing through the times you want to quit.

I believe that everyone needs to define success for themselves and should always strive to be your best even when you aren’t the best.
