“Every single one of us possesses the strength to attempt something he isn’t sure he can accomplish,” Scott Jurek

Now a multiple-time Boston Marathon qualifier and competitive Master’s athlete, I started running simply to get in shape for my high school reunion. The reunion came and went and I kept running.

I finished my first marathon at age 38 in a respectable 4:02 and was immediately hooked. I became a student of the marathon using Jeff Gaudette’s training philosophy and Runners Connect coaching. With dedicated coaching and training, I successfully shaved 30 minutes off my half marathon time and lowered my marathon PR to 2:58, remarkably without injury.

Running and plants have changed my life.  As a coach, I am passionate about sharing the tools and techniques I have learned to help athletes reach goals they never thought possible.  As a plant-powered athlete, I love creating and sharing amazing food to fuel the body and to nourish the soul.
