About Me

I have been running ultramarathons since 1993.  I ran my first 100 miler in 2000 and have, to date, completed 32 100 mile races, including 10 finishes at Western States.  I am an educator by trade, husband to Shelly for 25 years and the father a three great boys Carson (19), Logan (17) and Tully (14). 

My coaching philosophy is based on the notion of “first who, then what.”  For me, having a deep understanding of who an athlete is – where they are from, what their influences are, how they’ve evolved — forms the basis of what I do with that athlete and how their program evolves over time.  Building upon the virtues of that strong relationship, I then mold the athlete’s training around their goals and objectives as well as providing a sense of balance with the rest of their lives.


I provide coaching for trail ultrarunners of any distance.  I have working knowledge of many ultramarathon courses in the USA and can provide event specific coaching for most events around the country.  


I can coach athletes for success at any ultra distance but I have a particular passion for the long stuff.
