David Henry

CTS Expert Level Coach – Specializes in Ultrarunning Coaching

 

“My coaching philosophy continues to simplify over the years.  First, I prioritize relationships over the long haul, since benefits of coaching and training are often seen over longer time frames. Second, get the training load right!  No extra or superfluous workouts and everything has a purpose. Last, cultivate stoke and the Why. Getting to heart of what motivates each athlete is extremely important.”

 

Coach Bio:

Starting with my experience of climbing the Cascade Volcanoes with my Dad in my High School years, my attraction to the mountains and the unique challenges they provide birthed and continued to evolve throughout the years.  After a short stint doing some road cycling racing (including a few stage races) and triathlon, I started to get more into running. As soon as I realized that I could do the long drawn out alpine outings from my high school days in a handful of hours running, the rest was history.  I dove in head first into the world of ultrarunning in 2010 and haven’t stopped since. I’ve always been attracted to tough races but also like variety and consider myself somewhat of a generalist when it comes to running and coaching. I’m also a business owner and entrepreneur so I understand the challenges of working running into a demanding and busy life. Along with my three kids and wonderful wife, we are always looking for adventure both in the daily tasks as well as in the mountains.
