In short, working with Duncan has been fantastic. I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect, given Duncan is the first coach that I’ve had. However, having worked with Duncan for a bit over a year and a half, I couldn’t be happier. His focus on developing a training plan that balances both my competitive aspirations and life-balance is great. His knowledge and ability to discuss a wide range of training / racing / life topics always provides the right perspective when needed. His flexibility with our meeting / communication is great. Love the variability of how he structures trainings. And beyond all that, he’s just a great down to earth guy who I happy to have a good relationship with.
And if that all wasn’t enough, I had a very specific competitive stretch goal for myself the first day I began working with Duncan, which was to win the Kettle Moraine 100 miler. This was accomplished this past June and I wouldn’t have been able to do that, or the other lead-up milestones without Duncan’s partnership.
